CHICAGO (AP) — Nik Wallenda has successfully completed his two skyscraper tightrope walks in Chicago in a spectacle televised to an audience of millions around the world.
The 35-year-old daredevil first walked a high wire Sunday at a 19-degree incline from the Marina City west tower to the top of a building on the other side of a river.
Then he walked blindfolded between the two Marina City towers. He used no net or harness.
Wallenda’s previous feats include high-wire walks over the brink of Niagara Falls and across the Little Colorado River Gorge.
Wallenda is the great-grandson of Karl Wallenda, who fell to his death during a tightrope stunt in Puerto Rico at age 73.
