  • Daredevil Nik Wallenda to attempt death-defying tightrope walk in Chicago

    Daredevil and seventh generation tightrope walker Nik Wallenda will attempt a two-part high wire walk in the Windy City on Sunday, and he will do it without a tether or a net and while blindfolded on the second part. Wallenda plans to walk across a tightrope 50 stories high, from the top of Marina City's West Tower to the top of the Leo Burnett Building on the other side of the Chicago River, which will put him more than 600 feet off the ground, followed by a second shorter, but much more difficult walk between the two Marina City Towers because he will do it blindfolded., Fri, Oct 31 2014 @ 10:18 AM
