Daredevil’s high-wire act in Chicago

The King of the High Wire - Nik Wallenda

“Daredevil Nik Wallenda wowed Chicago and the world Sunday [Nov. 2, 2014] with two hair-raising skyscraper crossings on high wires without a safety net or a harness, and performing one blindfolded. Recalling what made him nervous during his aerial performances, he said strong winds and the steeper-than-expected angle of the first high wire caused him to hurry his performance. Wallenda had practiced at a 15-degree angle but said the wire was actually at 19 degrees.” (AP) Excerpt from Yahoo News.
