Daredevil high-wires over Niagara Falls

June 15, 2012 (NIAGARA FALLS, NY)

Thirty-three-year-old Nik Wallenda successfully walked 190 feet over the falls, not downstream as others have tried it.

Wallenda walked on a 2- inch wide cable from New York to Canada, the equivalent of four football fields.

He battled wind, fog and water spray.

The daredevil is a seventh generation member of the famous Wallenda family.
