Daredevil Nik Wallenda Grand Canyon Super Stunt :
Daredevil Nik Wallenda walks over Grand Canyon on this sunday and he was greeted by huge thunderclap and wild cheers over a five centimetre steeel cable. Nik also named as ‘King of the High Wire‘ walked over 426.7 metre across the crimson-hued canyon by only carrying a ribbon of the little colorado beneath him. This event was broadcasted live over television on sunday.
One year ago, when Nik climbed over Niagara falls he earned Guiness world book record but this time he did’nt wear a safety harness but he did carried a five centimetre thick rod which he carried previous year also. Nik Wallenda is a part of famous “Flying Wallendas” circus family and is a seventh generation high wire artist.
Nik’s grandfather named Karl Wallenda at the age of 73 fell in a performance in Puerto Rico and died . His several other cousins and uncle also lost their lives while performing these high wire monstrous stunts. After the death of Nik’s grandfather , the next year Nik was born and he also started climbing on highr ropes at the age of 2 on a 2 feet high stretched rope. He aged while performing with his family and dreamed of climbing over Grand Canyon when he was a teenager.
Another French high wire walker Phillipe Petit also desired this same dream to climb over Grand Canyon but he climbed over Little Colorado river but Navado’s officials said that he never do that stunt and left over his equipments to be taken over by Wallenda’s officials.
Daredevil Nik Wallenda while doing his performance wore two cameras one looking down the colorado river and other above him and was mostly helped by his leather elk-skin shoes which made a grip over the steel wire as he moved forth. Then after this, he had to move forth to the Grand Canyon ,that sacred area protected by American Indian where many wishes come true. Some local residents said that Wallenda didn’t know the location and go towards the Navajo nation and some said that he could’nt gamble one man’s life with the nation’s tourism.
In a nutshell, Daredevil Nik Wallenda proves it again after his ferocious and very brave act of climbing Niagara falls.
