    From the Buffalo News:

    Five years after her husband walked a tightrope over Niagara Falls, his wife is planning her own teeth-clenching stunt there.

    To be precise, Erendira Wallenda, a trapeze aerialist, plans to hang by her teeth from a tether connected to a helicopter flying over the Falls, Niagara County officials announced Tuesday night.

    By a 14-0 vote Tuesday, the County Legislature earmarked $35,000 to help pay any costs connected with the spectacle, which local officials hope will draw thousands of tourists like Nik Wallenda’s nationally televised 1,800-feet tightrope walk did on June 15, 2012.
