Nik “The Flying” Wallenda has done it again. The famous High Wire performer took is family act to Chicago and walked blindfolded between the Marina Towers. No easy feat but Nik makes it look like a walk in the park.
Nik has had some fantastic high wire walks in the past. Including this one over Niagara Falls just a few years ago.
Nik’s Grandfather wasn’t so lucky back in 1978. Karl Wallenda fell to his death in Puerto Rico when wind and poorly assembled wires contributed to the patriarch’s demise. Below is the video of his fall. Watch with caution as it may be disturbing to some viewers.
I can’t do heights, let alone watch these folks risk it all so high up. But I’ve got lots respect for this family’s desire to entertain.
Do you have a fear of heights like me?
