Her stunt adds to the lore and legend of the renowned Wallenda family, famous for astonishing audiences around the world with their jaw-dropping stunts executed from dizzying heights.

Daredevil acrobat Erendira Wallenda set a new world record Thursday when she hung by her teeth from a helicopter some 300-feet above Niagara Falls.

She was tethered by her waist during the stunt to comply with a NY state law that requires safety harnesses for performers more than 6 metres in the air.

The 36-year-old mother-of-three was tethered to a hoop suspended from a helicopter 300ft above the water.

United States media said her stunt set a Guinness World Record for height, breaking a record established by her husband Nik when hanging from his teeth 250 feet (76 meters) above Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri.

Wallenda hung above the falls for around seven or eight minutes.

After she landed, Wallenda said the stunt "felt incredible".

Wallenda dangled by her teeth while 300 feet in the air.

Wallenda is the wife of famed tightrope walker Nik Wallenda, who pulled off a stunt of his own in the same place exactly five years ago by tightrope walking across Niagara Falls himself.

The Niagara County Legislature helped finance the act, allocating a sum of $35,000 last month.

Erendira Wallenda said she was caught off guard by the windy conditions above the cataracts, something her husband had to deal with during his 2012 stunt.

Wallenda comes from a family of stunt artists and world record chasers.
