A close call in the Niagara rapids over the weekend for a group of Sea-Doo riding dare devils.
A Dunnville man, one of four people in the dangerous rapids just north of the whirlpool, got into trouble when his watercraft hit a wave and capsized.
He was pulled from the water by his friends.
But both the Canadian and U.S. Coast Guards were alerted and the Niagara Whirlpool Jet Boat was also on hand just in case.
The damaged watercraft was taken back to the docks by the coast guard.
The group says they saw no signs prohibiting personal watercraft from heading into the lower Niagara River rapids.
