Tourist Films Moms Arrest At Niagara Falls

Authorities say an upstate New York woman has been charged with child endangerment after witnesses told police she took her daughter for a swim in the dangerous waters at the base of Niagara Falls.

Police at Niagara Falls State Park say Jaime Lynn Bailey of Trumansburg was charged Wednesday evening after she took her daughter to an off-limits area at the base of the American side of the Falls.

Police say Bailey, the girl and two men had climbed over a stone wall to get to the restricted, boulder-strewn area, where witnesses reported seeing them in the water.

Bailey was charged with endangering the welfare of the child, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

She posted bail and was released. A message left at her home Friday morning wasn't immediately returned.

  • I do not know what is worse for the child, swimming at the base of the falls there were their mother judged (correctly) was safe... for clearly they did not die! or seeing their mother being violently arrested and humiliated and maybe sent to jail. Besides, what kind of ethic do these people have, squealing on each other! on mother and son of all beings!

    • Your reasoning is so screwed up on so many levels that I'm amazed you can stand up without getting dizzy trying to reconcile your view of reality with the actual world.

      1) Just because they didn't die doesn't mean that it was safe to swim there.

      2) Just because the mom thinks it's safe doesn't make it okay for her to disregard the rules by entering a restricted area there.

      3) Being wrestled around because you are resisting isn't my notion of 'violence'. Physical, yes-- violent? Give me a bre More..

    • I'm guessing you just got out of prison and are on parole. It's usually the convicts who hate police the most. It's not their fault that you commited a crime and spent years getting ass raped by big burly guys.... although you probably liked that part of your incarceration didn't you..... you dirty little slut ??

      Where in the video do you see a kid in danger?
      I see one standing in a parking lot watching some fag cop trying to trip a smaller lady over (and failing at that! ), for no apparent reason other than some douche bag like you thought swimming is too dangerous.
      Kid looked fine to me other than watching her faith in the police vanish before her eyes. And BTW... my kids are all grown and perfectly fine. Not whinny little twerps like your would most assuredly be.

      Let's stay on point though. Have you ever been to the falls before? If you say no, then your view on this just became less than worthless. I HAVE been there. I've seen the waters and how strong they are. It's not safe for adults to swim in that area, let alone children. I fail to see how you don't understand this. Se More..

    • "The deepest section in the Niagara River is just below the Falls. It is so deep it equals the height of the Falls above, 52 m (170 ft)." .....To all those who think it is safe to take your kids swimming in water that is 170 ft. deep, with raging rip currents, don't expect anyone to care when you die from your own stupidity. If you want to risk your own life, fine, but don't put your kids at risk. I have been to Niagra Falls, and we hiked down to the area below the Falls, and I would n More..

    • Maybe that's why they created laws to prevent people from being so stupid.

      We have "Stupid" laws in this state too. You would be amazed on how many stupid people there are.

      Here's how it works. A stupid person decides to cross a flooded out portion of the road. That stupid person dies. That stupid person's family sues the state for not having signs that warn stupid people from crossing flooded out portions of the road. The stupid people win lawsuit.

  • I happen to live pretty close Niagra Falls and I've been there dozens of times. It is UNBELIEVABLY dangerous at the base of the falls. Several stuntmen drowned at the base of the falls performing some stunt around the whirlpools. Most people who survive going over the falls actually drown at the base trapped in undercurrents, whirlpools, and very dangerous rapids that will smash your ass against rocks. This lady definitely endangered the life of her child if she was swimming anywhere within More..

  • I think the point is that if something happened to them, Rescue workers will be put in danger trying to save them. Fast moving water like that is nothing to mess with. Undertow is a bitch. And those rock are slick with algae.

  • People who resist make me laugh. Right or wrong their going,to resist is quite stupid. Unless it is a false arrest(which this was not),then not only do you have the right but you have the obligation to resist.

    • Yikes man. While I agree with your sentiment, to resist is to give them cause. It doesn't matter what you did or didn't do up to that point; as soon as you resist you have crossed their line and it's batter up for the gung-ho kop. best to just bend over and take it until you get to plea your case to the real authority . . . the judge.
