Thrill seeker Nik Wallenda completes trip over Grand Canyon – Miguel Marquez reports

Nik Wallenda does it again.

The daredevil tight-rope walker just completed what may be the greatest of his death-defying stunts—walking on a wire across the Grand Canyon, without even a safety harness or a net.

Miguel Marquez, who saw the high-wire walker in action, tells all about the “twenty two minutes and 54 second of death-defying and vertigo-inducing thrill.”

“Twice, he stopped, kneeling to regain his composure and steady the wire, quivering under his feet,” Marquez reports. “For the finale,
Nik Wallenda ran to the finish.”
