U.S Daredevil Nik Wallenda Grand Canyon Tightrope Walk Will Give You The Head Spins!

Nik-Wallenda
This amazing footage is of U.S. daredevil Nik Wallenda, 34, completing an astonishing quarter of a mile walk across the Grand Canyon, without a safety harness!! Watching Wallenda make his way across the 2-inch thick cable, 1,500 above the Little Colorado River Gorge really will give you the head spins and certainly won’t help if you are suffering from Mondayitis or a hangover!!

Wallenda took 22 minutes to complete the extraordinary stunt, during which he had to crouch down a couple of times on the wire in order to get “the rhythm out of the rope” as strong winds threatened his balance.

When he neared the end of his journey, Wallenda confidently jogged the last few meters and his incredible feat was broadcast live on the Discovery Channel. Continue Reading

80-Year Old Escapes Death After Sky Diving Fail

This is a video of 81-year old Laverne freaking out before a tandem skydiving jump in 2011 and accidentally slipping out of her harness.

Laverne, who lives in a modest studio apartment in small California town of Oakdale, says she craves a little excitement once in a while. So in 2011 for her 80th birthday she decided to jump out of a plane, much to the surprise of her family.

Just before the jump happened, Laverne held on to the plane doors and appeared to yell ‘no!’ – telling her instructor to stop. She clearly didn’t want to jump, and I wonder if the skydiving company charged extra for the extra thrill.

Luckily, no one was seriously hurt on the day.Continue Reading
