Tightrope Walk Over Chicago!
We are always happy to report on Nik Wallenda’s daredevil feats … after they’re over.
Over the weekend, he walked between two skyscrapers in Chicago, 600 feet up, on a tightrope, with no safety tether (nothing to catch him should he fall).
Thankfully, he didn’t.
And if that wasn’t enough, he went straight to a second walk between two skyscrapers — this time blindfolded! This was a shorter walk than the first by a few minutes, but still!
HTE reported on his last feat, which was walking across an area near the Grand Canyon. You can read that story here .
Mr. Wallenda said during the walk, “You guys watching think I’m crazy but this is what I was made for.”
Mr. Wallenda comes from a family with many generations of highwire performers, not all with happy endings.
Congratulations to Nik Wallenda on his success!
