Did the fruit make something possible? Did the waterfall? Was the waterfall intended to?

Were the fruit and waterfall in the same place?

Location relevant?
Time period relevant?
People relevant?
Type of fruit relevant?
Height of waterfall relevant? Was it an artificial waterfall?

When you say the waterfall was "intended to," do you mean that it was
put together (as by beavers)
or
built (as by humans)
in order to create a result that was
hoped for
or
expected
?
Good puzzle!

Good puzzle! Thanks..

Tourism relevant? Fame? Death? Murder? Did someone go over the Niagara falls and survive, only to later choke to death on a piece of fruit?

I've never heard of him, poor fellow!
But I'm glad it wasn't biblical.

I'd say it was a well-worded puzzle, Quovynte!
