Death-Defying Stunt in Chicago Will Be Blindfolded
Since walking on a high wire above the ground isn’t daring enough, Nik Wallenda announced that he’ll do his next death-defying stunt in Chicago blindfolded. Here's when and where you can watch.
According to USA Today Newspaper, there will be two parts to the death-defying dare. For the first part of the tightrope crossing, Wallenda will walk two city blocks – from the Marina City’s west tower to the Leo Burnett Building at more than 50 stories high above the Chicago River.
He will then put on the blindfold for the second part of the stunt, as he goes from the Marina City’s west tower to the east tower. Dozens of cameras will be positioned across the city and on helicopters – capturing every step as Wallenda attempts to cross one of the windiest sections of Chicago.
Discovery will air it all on Skyscraper Live with Nik Wallenda, 6 p.m Chicago time on Sunday November 2, 2014.
The walk will be hosted by NBC News’ Willie Geist, Natalie Morales and The Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore because weather is such a big factor of success or not.
This has been a dream of Wallenda for many years. At the age of 35, he has been practicing for months for the event.
I'll just keep my feet on the ground thank you. I'll be watching and praying at the same time.
The real question is "Why?".
