New Record In Niagara Falls

World Record of 25-minute Tightrope Walk Across Niagara Fallshttp://images.ctv.ca/archives/CTVNews/img2/20120615/800_wallenda_niagara_falls_cp_120615.jpgThere was "wind coming from every which way," mist so powerful it clouded his vision and an unfamiliar wire beneath him, but daredevil Nik Wallenda didn't let that stop him from becoming the first person to walk on a tightrope across the Niagara Falls. He took steady, measured steps Friday night for 1,800 feet on a wire across the widest part of the gorge of the roaring falls separating the US and Canada, accomplishing what he said was his childhood dream — albeit wearing a tether. "I feel like I'm on cloud nine right now," an exuberant Wallenda told reporters after his feat.
