(Athens Banner-Herald) A daredevil who died after plunging over Niagara Falls in an apparent stunt with an inflatable ball might have brought a boa constrictor along for the ride.
After Kirk Jones’ death, New York State Park Police found a website with a photo of him and the 7-foot snake named Misty previewing his plans and selling T-shirts and photos, the Niagara Gazette reported Wednesday.
"Believe in the Impossible Kirk Jones + Misty Conquer Niagara Falls NY 2017," read the site, which has since been taken down.
