Coast Guard diver pulls body from car above Niagara Falls

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) — A U.S. Coast Guard diver was lowered from a hovering helicopter to pull a body from a partly submerged vehicle stuck in the frigid rapids above Niagara Falls. Petty Officer 2nd Class Derrian Duryea, a Detroit-based rescue swimmer, spent about two minutes recovering the body from the car, as water surged past, then over the falls about 50 yards downstream. Authorities said Wednesday the lone occupant was a woman in her 60s who lived in the area. It was unclear how the car got into the river. New York’s State Park Police said rescuers have never been called to a vehicle so close to the edge.
