A 33-year-old Amherst man was taken to a Niagara Falls hospital Tuesday afternoon for treatment of a leg injury he suffered when he fell on icy stairs after fishing in the Devil’s Hole area of the Niagara River about 2½ miles downstream from the cataracts at Niagara Falls.

The victim, Brandon Jenkins, was helped by State Park Police after he slipped on the icy stairs near the water’s edge at about 2 p.m.
