From WIVB Channel 4 in Buffalo:
The Niagara Falls Common Council approved $35,000 for a June 15 stunt over Niagara Falls that will feature the wife of famed Niagara Falls tightrope-walker Nik Wallenda.
Erendira Wallenda, an acrobat, plans to dangle by her teeth from a helicopter over the falls on June 15, the five-year anniversary of Nik’s stunt.
From the Las Vegas Weekly:
At this time last week, Lijana Wallenda-Hernandez was feeling a little stressed. There was the water, the height, the mist. There were the cameras, the reporters, the 125,000 Canadians waiting in the dark, the two years of negotiating and changing laws, all leading to this one day: the day her little brother would tightrope walk across Niagara Falls.
“It was awesome. It was breathtaking to watch,” says Lijana, who took in the stunt at the falls with the rest of the Flying Wallenda tightrope-walking clan. “It was also very nerve-wracking. I would rather have been the one up there than watching him do it.”
