Annie Edson Taylor, a 63-year-old schoolteacher, was the first person to ride down Niagara falls in a pickle barrel on October 24, 1901. Strapped in a leather harness inside the padded barrel, she plunged down Horseshoe Falls and picked up by a boat after. Since that first barrel ride, 15 people have attempted to ride the famous falls, 10 of those survived. Today it is illegal to ride down Niagara Falls.
