Aerialist Nik Wallenda completes record-breaking high-wire walk
Today:Daredevil Nik Wallenda completed a record-breaking 1,400-feet-long high-wire walk over a portion of the Grand Canyon on Sunday without a safety net or harness.
The walk, which was live streamed by Discovery Channel, was 1,500 feet above the Little Colorado River Gorge near the Grand Canyon. Using the same 2-inch-thick steel cable he used to cross the Niagara Falls last year, Wallenda was attempting his eighth Guinness world record.
Wallenda is a seventh-generation high-wire artist and part of the famous “Flying Wallendas” family.
