Nik Wallenda's Amazing Stunt!

Nik Wallenda. You probably didn't know him before today. He is the first one ever to walk across the Niagara Falls. In about 25 minutes and 21 seconds, he was able to cross from the United States to Canada. It was funny when the law enforcers come to see his passport right after he reached Canada. He had it put his passport in his pocket with a water-proof bag. I watched as he reached the misty part of the rope, I thought he would fall. I was amazed when he was able to walk right through the water when it was hitting him so hard. This must have taken a lot of work. It took two years of effort to be able to overcome this once thought impossible stunt. They had to convince two countries to allow this stunt. I am just glad no one died. He wants to cross over the Grand Canyon next. I hope he can do this. Keep trying, Nik!

This is a picture of Nik Wallenda as he crossed over the rope.
