Recently, a daring man made history by walking across the Grand Canyon on a steel wire. Now, Nik Wallenda is at it again.
Nik and Lijana Wallenda have once again taken to the sky to showcase their incredible tightrope walk-in abilities. The pair comes from a famous line of daredevils and tightrope walkers.
"The siblings — members of the Flying Wallendas circus family — held balancing poles and started on opposite sides of a 1,300-foot wire, strung between 1 Times Square at the south end at 42nd Street, and 2 Times Square, just north of the TKTS booth at 47th Street," reported the New York Times.
Their most recent stunt was walking across a wire that was suspended above Times Square. It was nearly 25-stories high above the ground. Onlookers held their breaths as they watched the extreme act. The pair walked opposite each other and at one point crossed paths.
"Ms. Wallenda lowered herself and sat carefully on the wire as her brother skillfully stepped over her," according to reports.
Thankfully they made it! The crowd went wild and they once again became overnight sensations! Join us in congratulating the Wallendas!
