NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario, Aug. 6 (UPI) -- Canadian police say they tried to put the kibosh on some daredevils' thoughts of going over Niagara Falls in a kayak.

Niagara Parks Police Inspector Paul Forcier said police received a tip about a potential kayak stunt at the falls being planned by a number of people and they contacted one of the individuals involved, the Niagara Falls (Ontario) Review reported Tuesday.

Forcier said that person confirmed the planned stunt was to involve one or two kayakers and the person was warned engaging in such an attempt without the written permission of the Niagara Parks Commission would be a violation of the Niagara Parks Act of Ontario.

A violation could result in a fine of up to $9,600.
