On the 4th of February, 1912, at the Niagara Falls on the border between America and Canada, three innocent people were swept to their deaths in the raging waters. The three were tourists, who had been enjoying the then perfectly-ordinary practise of walking across the base of the falls on a bridge of ice that sometimes formed there in winter.

I tell the true stories behind some of history's greatest disasters... but without sensationalism or disturbing imagery. Fascinating Horror is all about in-depth research, respectful storytelling, and learning what we can from the mistakes of the past. You might be surprised to discover just how much of today's world is shaped by long-forgotten disasters from decades gone by.
CORRECTION: At one point in this video I give the date of this incident as the 4th of August. I should, in fact, have said the 4th of February.
NN COMMENTS: They cover even the disasters you've read up on before freshly in patient detail, fully illustrated. Channel title is funsy, the subjects horrifying, the British narrator humane and purposeful.
Being a jew Jersey escapee I found the one on Action Park (Traction Park, Actionable Park) in Sussex County expeshly interesting -- don't remember ever hearing of it up there. Haha, the fool who ignored 'keep out' warnings and was instantly decapitated!
