Trapeze artist dangles by her teeth over Niagra Falls

  • Erendira Wallenda hangs from a helicopter as she performs before the start of the NASCAR Sprint Cup series auto race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord N.C. Five years after Nik Wallenda walked over Niagara Falls

You might remember in 2011 when Nik got on a trapeze attached to a helicopter that hovered 250 feet above a Missouri theme park.

It's also a favorite place for Wallendas to just hang out. Onlookers were as impressed as they were anxious about the whole stunt, as he set a new record for the "iron-jaw hang".

Imagine hanging outside of a helicopter flying over Niagara Falls.

Wallenda, a mother-of-three, was tethered to a hoop suspended from a helicopter 300 feet above the water.

After her routine, Erendira waved to the crowd watching her with binoculars and cameras. Kevin Seneca, VP seneca nation board of directors, said the Seneca Gaming Corp. also chipped in $50,000 to assist her in her "date with history".

She said as an artist and as a daredevil, there's something "almost magical" about the falls. It was only there to catch her if she fell - which she never did.

Nik Wallenda said the reason Erendira's stunt was performed at 8:30 a.m. was to maximize exposure for viewers and capitalize on a full day of media coverage to promote the Niagara region.

Comey's testimony raised lingering questions surrounding Sessions' recusal from the FBI's Russian Federation probe. He had told lawmakers at his January confirmation hearing that he had not met with Russians during the campaign.

The Wallenda family is at it again. And it was televised live. Some people came to watch the performance, while others stumbled upon it while walking down the Niagara Parkway. During that time, Erendira was dangling about two dozen feet - today, 300 feet.

"Continue to not push on and not give up", Nik said.

"It hurts really bad", he said.

The daredevil couple insinuated they could perform a duo stunt together in a few years.

"I had no idea what was going on and then, lo and behold, I found out she was holding on with her teeth and gliding over, which is a little scary". Nik was 3-years-old and Erendira was 3-months-old.

"Obviously, my dentist doesn't want me to do this for the rest of my life", Erendira added.

In June 2013, Nik Wallenda became the first man to cross the Grand Canyon on a tightrope, completing that record-breaking feat in under 23 minutes.
