Aerialist hangs by her teeth from a helicopter over Niagara Falls

Aerialist hangs by her teeth from a helicopter over Niagara Falls

A woman plans to do a death-defying stunt on live TV.

Wallenda was tethered to a hoop suspended from a helicopter 300 feet (91 meters) above the water Thursday.

The acrobat's husband, Nik Wallenda, walked an 1,800-foot tightrope from the NY side of Niagara Falls into Canada. She then hung upside down with her feet on the hoop before repeating the mouth stunt.

Erendira Wallenda, the wife of the famous daredevil, showed him how it's done on Thursday, besting his world record at the "iron-jaw hang" stunt.

Erendira, a lifetime aerialist, is the product of eight generations of circus performers on her mother's side and seven generations on her father's side.

The daredevil couple insinuated they could perform a duo stunt together in a few years. Legislators and the Wallendas said the payoff would come later, with the spread of photos and video from the stunt.

Erendira told reporters afterward that "it felt amazing" to be high above the Falls, but she wasn't expecting it to be so windy.

"It's fantastic", said Joanna Romano, from Niagara Falls.

"I have not seen anything like that and honestly don't know if they even exist at this point", Tompkins said.

"It felt incredible. It was a little more windy than I expected it to be, but then I just put myself back in my backyard where I train all the time", Wallenda said of the stunt. Watching her husband five years ago made her want to do something as well.

Nik and Erendira have been married for 17 years and have three children. In 2012, Nik's walk generated an economic impact of $21.5 million and $3.3 million in direct revenues to the City of Niagara Falls, Fox News reported.

The $120,000 stunt was jointly sponsored by the city of Niagara Falls, the Niagara County Legislature and the Seneca Niagara Resort and Casino.

"She's a ballerina in the air", he said Wednesday.

The Niagara Falls, New York Gazette provided details to this story.

"It was awesome", said Romano.
