Nik Wallenda – A Tightrope Walk Between Two Skyskrapers

Most people have difficulty when it comes to balance, but Nik Wallenda, professional daredevil talked 600 ft above downtown Chicago Sunday and he was partly blindfolded.

“I love Chicago, and Chicago definitely loves me. What an amazing roar,” Wallenda stated.

One foot in front of the other, under seven minutes, Wallenda started from Marina City’s West Tower, where he passed over the Chicago River to the Leo Burnett Building. He then returned to the West Tower and made his way to the East Tower in one minute and 20 seconds. Crowds watched anxiously below as he preformed this dangerous stunt for Skyscraper Live which was aired on the Discovery Channel.

According to CNN, “As a member of the famous Flying Wallendas, founded by his grandfather Karl Wallenda in the 1920s, Wallenda is no stranger to death-defying stunts. He walked across a wire 1,500 feet above a river in Arizona in June 2013, becoming the first person to traverse the gorge near Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona. Before that, he made a record journey across Niagara Falls in 2012.”

Without a tether, Wallenda cheated death on a rope no thicker than a nickel.
