Female Daredevil Hangs By Teeth and Toes Above Niagara Falls
Erendira Wallenda completed the heart-pounding stunt this morning.
Aerialist Erendira Wallenda made history this morning by hanging from a helicopter by her teeth and toes at a record-breaking height over the rushing water of Niagara Falls, USA Today reports.
The wife of famed high-wire daredevil Nik Wallenda, Erendira admitted to reporters in a press conference following her stunts that the weather made the task more difficult than she anticipated.
“It felt amazing. It was a little more windy than I expected it to be, but then I just put myself back in my backyard where I train all the time,” Wallenda said. “I felt good enough to where I was able to hang by my teeth a second time.”
There may be some hard feelings in her household.
Erendira’s performance comes several years later and took place three hundred feet higher than her husband’s then-record-breaking stunt in 2011, in which he hung by his teeth 250 feet in the air.
