ABC, Wallenda reach deal on Falls tightrope walk
Question of the Day
“It’s family history. This is what we do,” Wallenda said Friday, a day before starting daily sessions on a practice wire outside the Seneca Niagara Casino. “I feel like that’s taking away from it. I feel like I’m cheating at that point.”
He said he’s trained to grab the wire if there’s trouble.
Part of the three television hours will be an examination of the greatest stunts of all time, with the live walk between the New York and Canada shores expected to take about 30-40 minutes.
While Wallenda’s family history includes success across generations, it’s not been without tragedy. In 1978, his great-grandfather, Karl, fell to his death in a tightrope walk in Puerto Rico at age 73. A misstep during a signature seven-person chair pyramid killed three men in 1962 in Detroit.
