NIAGARA FALLS | Authorities in the Niagara Falls region have identified the body of a man found while they searched for a Japanese woman swept over the waterfall.

Dental records revealed the body is that of a man from Hamilton, Ontario, who had been reported missing. Regional police said Thursday that no foul play is suspected, and as a routine matter they did not release his name.

The body was found by a helicopter while authorities searched for a 19-year-old student who tumbled off a railing Sunday on the Canadian side of the falls.

Niagara Parks Police in Ontario told the Buffalo News in New York that they’re scaling back the search for the young woman because currents are too strong.

Authorities haven’t released her name but have said she was a student in Toronto. The Canadian man’s death appears unrelated.

Foreign students protest outside Hershey facility

HERSHEY | The chocolate maker Hershey Co. is facing questions about the working conditions for foreign students in warehouse jobs.

About 150 people picketed Wednesday outside a distribution center at a protest organized by the National Guestworker Alliance. Students who participated said their program had been pitched as a way for them to see America.

However, the students said they’re isolated and left with little money after rent for company housing is deducted from their paychecks.

One joked with the Patriot-News of Harrisburg that he had hoped to improve his language skills but that English isn’t among the five languages spoken in the warehouse.

Hershey officials said the warehouse is run by a subcontractor and is expected to treat workers fairly. A spokeswoman for the subcontractor said another company handles its guest-worker program.
