Five years after Nik Wallenda walked over the falls on a high wire, someone else wants to take a turn at daring do over one of the natural wonders of the world. A trapeze artist whose husband happens to be that same daredevil Nik Wallenda is planning her own stunt high above Niagara Falls.
It’s planned for June 15, the fifth anniversary of Nik Wallenda’s televised 550-metre tightrope walk from the New York side of the falls into Canada.
Aerialist Erendira Vasquez Wallenda plans to dangle by her teeth from a helicopter as it flies over the American side of Niagara Falls.
The Niagara County legislature late Tuesday approved a resolution setting aside $35,000 for the act.
