Description

Stunt enthusiasts can breathe a little easier now that Nik Wallenda is back on solid ground. Wallenda, of the famous Flying Wallendas family, set a Guinness World Record for being the first person to walk across the Orlando Eye in Florida on Wednesday morning. The Eye is billed as the largest observation wheel on the U.S. East Coast. His stunt, filmed live on the Today show, put the daredevil at a staggering height of 400-feet aboveground. What's more, Wallenda was unable to use a balancing pole. Wednesday's stunt isn't his first world record — in 2013, Wallenda became the first person to walk across the Grand Canyon on a tightrope. http://feeds.mashable.com/~r/Mashable/~3/xlJCffPdfnk/ http://www.wochit.com
