The short story "Adventure at the Niagara Falls" was written by an unknown author and published by the Ernst Klett Verlag in 2017. The story is about three young people going on a boat trip on the Niagara River.

The three young people are called Jason, Andy and Sheila. As a gift for Jason's birthday they go on a boat trip on the Niagara River. Everything is fine until the boat hits a rock. The boat starts to fill with water and turns over. All three of them fall into the water. Sheila thinks they are going to die. Luckily there is a big boat nearby. The people on that boat throw them life belts and Sheila and Andy get rescued.

The end of the story is open because we don't know what happens to Jason.
