Wallenda to tightrope walk over Niagara Falls

France 24
Wednesday, 15 February 2012

A daredevil will become the first in more than a century to attempt to cross the gorge at Niagara Falls on a tightrope, after the Niagara Parks Commission on Wednesday authorized the stunt.

The Canadian commission reversed its decision in December to deny Nik Wallenda's request to perform the stunt after hearing from the high-wire artist that it could generate significant economic returns for the region.

New York state and the mayor of Niagara Falls, New York had already agreed to it, so the Canadian commission's permission was the last obstacle.
