Nik Wallenda becomes first person to walk across Niagra Falls on tightrope
CBC News: “Nik Wallenda has successfully crossed Niagara Falls on a highwire strung high above the raging waters, a historic achievement for the American aerialist.
Wallenda, who hails from a long line of high-wire artists, several of whom have died during performances, started his [1,800-foot]-long stroll from the American side at around 10:15 p.m. ET and completed it roughly half an hour later.”
