Nik Wallenda Walks High Wire Over Niagara Falls

In the end, the spectacle surrounding Nik Wallenda's high-wire walk over Niagara Falls forced him to change his original plans. He ended up performing the stunt while wearing a safety harness at the request of ABC. On Friday night in prime time, it took Wallenda roughly 30 minutes to walk a third of a mile across a wire dripping with water in one of the most watched border crossings in history.
