Erendira Wallenda plans helicopter stunt over Niagara Falls

Rather than walk the expanse of the iconic falls, she made a decision to hang from a helicopter by her feet and also by her teeth.

Trapese artist Erendira, also the wife of famed daredevil Nik Wallenda, broke her husband's record by just 50 feet.

Wallenda performed a routine 300 feet above Niagara Falls, dangling from a helicopter, held steady in blistering winds. Wallenda spent about eight minutes of the 10-minute stunt hovering over the falls.

A further ten thousand people gathered on the USA and Canadian sides for Nik Wallendina's televised high-wire walk over Niagara Falls.

Joked the husband, "In five more years I'm going to hang by one tooth, 800 feet above the falls".

"She's a ballerina in the air", Nikolas said during the press conference. Kevin Seneca, VP seneca nation board of directors, said the Seneca Gaming Corp. also chipped in $50,000 to assist her in her "date with history". "Well, why don't you allow me to do it 300 feet above the falls?"

Taking off over the Horeshoe Falls at 8:35 a.m., Erendira Wallenda hung from the helicopter by clinging on to a customized mouthpiece attached to the bottom of the aircraft for 20 minutes.

Most people like to see Niagara Falls the normal way: from a boat, from the viewing decks, from the observation tower or from the restaurant at the top.

The city hoped Erendira's stunt would generate attention as well.

This time it was Erendira Wallenda delicately performing high above the falls to an astonished crowd Thursday morning. Now, his wife, Erendira, has her own record at the waterfalls.

"Continue to not push on and not give up", Nik said.

The couple is part of The Flying Wallendas - the generations-old family acrobatic and performance troupe known for its impressive stunts and tricks.
