The Three Sister Islands are connected to Goat Island by bridges. They have witnessed many awesome sights since Niagara Falls first became known to the world. They are three beautiful little islands lying like emeralds on white velvet just above the Falls. Twenty eight years ago William McCollough fell into the rapids near the Second Sister Island. When above a quarter of the way down to the spot where he was to be hurled to death over the brink the current lodged him against a low ledge lf rock, from which he was rescued by Conroy, a guide, who managed to reach the victim within a line.
