Wallenda Daredevil Dangles over Niagara Falls by Mouth, Breaking Record

Acilia Dean | 19 Giugno, 2017, 03:17

Thursday's aerial stunt came on the fifth anniversary of Wallenda's husband's tightrope walk over the falls.

Erendira Wallenda planned the stunt to mark the fifth anniversary of her husband's televised death-defying 1,800 foot tightrope walk from the NY side of Niagara Falls into Canada.

Holly Withers, also of CT, said she was "a little nervous" watching the performance, "imagining if I was the one to do it".

Wallenda dangled from her teeth twice - the first time, for 10 seconds, and the second time, for five, according to the Buffalo News.

The whirling sound of the helicopter is the only thing that can be heard as all eyes are on the sky watching Erendira Wallenda make history. While she sat in the hoop, the helicopter returned to the roof of the garage of the Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino.


Her husband, Nik, said Erendira's mental trip during the performance brought something immediately to mind.

Her husband, tightrope walker Nik Wallenda, says the cable won't aide her performance. She set a world record in 2016 by completing 40 revolutions in her hoop in 50 seconds beneath a helicopter above the Atlantic City shore. After performing several stunts set to music, the copter and its passengers were back on the ground before 9 a.m. The Oehler family chose to plan their day around it - celebrating their 21st wedding anniversary by watching Wallenda.

"She's a ballerina in the air", he said. His last flight above the Falls was many years ago filming for CBS's 'The Amazing Race.' It's a vantage that doesn't get old, Barth said. She said her dentist made her a mouth guard that she will wear, but she will use her jaw muscles to avoid falling.

"As an artist and a daredevil I guess, there is something abut it, something nearly magical that draws you to it", she said. Erendira Vazquez Wallenda's stunt happened Thursday morning.

In February, Nik Wallenda attempted to perform another high wire stunt with an eight-person pyramid.
