Synopsis >

Daredevil Nik Wallenda completed a high-wire walk on a 2-inch (5-cm) steel cable over a section of the Grand Canyon on Sunday, greeted by wild cheers after his hair-raising stunt. Wallenda, the self-described 'King of the High Wire,' took 22 minutes and 54 seconds to walk 1,400 feet (426m) across the crimson-hued canyon with just the distant ribbon of the Little Colorado River beneath him. The event was broadcast live around the world. Wallenda made the crossing without tether or safety net.
