Big Helicopter Stunt Planned Over Niagara Falls Today

Something a little “different” is happening at Niagara Falls today. Aerial artist Erendira Wallenda will fly over the Falls suspended from a helicopter in an effort to break a record set by her dare-devil husband Nik Wallenda. She plans to perform a series of manoeuvres — including hanging by her teeth and toes — while on a hoop suspended from the helicopter. Nik, who walked across the falls on a tightrope five years ago, describes his wife as a “ballerina in the air.” He says it was her idea to top his record of hanging by his teeth under a helicopter 60 metres above the ground by doing so 90 metres above the falls.
