The story of Joseph Avery
The story of joseph Avery is a sad one. Joseph was taking his boat down the Niagara River together with two other men when the strong water currents destroyed their boat. The river washed down the two men, but Joseph managed to save himself from the rapids.
He climbed on a rock where he waited for 18 hours for help to come. An unnamed boat was sent to him, and he thought he had finally been rescued. He tried getting into the boat, but it immediately capsized, killing him. In this photo, he is seeing waiting on a rock for rescue.
