On Friday, June 15, Nik Wallenda set a new record for courage as he crossed Niagara Falls on a tightrope – much to the delight of thousands of spectators who’d gathered to watch.
Below the tightrope, Wallenda’s wife and children sat aboard the Maid of the Mist, cheering him on. While the crossing proved challenging, particularly after Wallenda was required to wear a harness by ABC, the network that broadcast the stunt live.
Fortunately, luck and many years of skill were on Wallenda’s side and he completed the crossing without a slip.
Naturally in Niagara was on hand to film the event – we think you’ll enjoy the footage!
