Man Blindfolded Wire Walks Between Skyscrapers

Daredevil Nik Wallenda wowed Chicago and the world Sunday night November 2 2014, with two hair-raising skyscraper crossings on the high wire without a safety net or a harness.  Thousands of cheering fans packed the streets around the city’s Marina City towers to watch the 35-year-old heir to the Flying Wallendas’ family business complete the back-to-back walks including one wearing a blindfold.

As he stepped from the wire after completing the second leg, he tore off his blindfold and waved to the crowd of thousands below who erupted in cheers.  The spectacle was telecast almost-live on the Discovery Channel so producers could cut away if Wallenda fell.

A year before Wallenda was born, his great-grandfather fell to his death during a tightrope stunt in Puerto Rico. He was 73.
