Daredevil American Nik Wallenda Makes Historic Tightrope Crossing Over Niagara Falls.
Daredevil American, Nik Wallenda, has made a historic tightrope crossing over roaring Niagara Falls, on Friday night, walking on a thin wire and stepping onto safe ground in Canada.
Crowd on both the U.S. and Canadian borders gathered to cheer and see Wallenda’s death-defying daredevil act. On Friday, Wallenda fulfilled his childhood dream and became the first person in the world to walk on a 2-inch (5-cm) cable across the Niagara Falls.
The 33-year-old took a little more than 25 minutes to cover the 1,800 feet distance from the U.S. side in the dark of night.
As soon as he crossed the falls and arrived on the Canadian side, he hugged his family and greeted Canadian officials who playfully asked him for his American passport. When the officials questioned Wallenda’s purpose of visit, he replied saying that he had come to “inspire people,” Reuters reported.
