At the base of a waterfall in Ambario lay hunks of shattered wood and a broken corpse—that of Desiree LaFlamme who perished in an attempt to ride a barrel over the falls and died as a result. The Stunt is publicised on a poster at Emerald Station. "Desiree LaFlamme Queen of the Rapids"
This point of interest is likely a reference to the real-life Annie Edson Taylor, the first person to survive a trip over Niagara Falls in a barrel. Unlike her in-game counterpart, Annie survived her stunt with nothing but a small gash on her head, as did a cat who previously made the trip to test the strength of the barrel.
Arthur's drawing: "Found the remains of some poor bastard woman tried to go over a waterfall in a barrel. Found it interesting, sad, i guess. An even more ridiculous life than the one i lead."
John's drawing: "Found a dead body in a barrel. Some poor woman, wonder why she did this. Glory? Love? Stupidity? All three?."
