Tightrope Walk


Daredevil acrobat Nik Wallenda gingerly crossed two wires, at one point blindfolded and without a safety harness or a net, strung between two Chicago skyscrapers on a Sunday evening in a derring-do high-wire act above the Windy City. Holding a pole, Wallenda cautiously moved across a wire that was 3/4-inch thick. It was the latest feat for Wallenda, who became the first person to walk across the Grand Canyon on a wire in June 2013. Wallenda took on a 15-degree incline for the first part of the Chicago walk and then wore a blindfold during the second part of it.
