Daredevil hangs by her teeth from helicopter over Niagara Falls

16 June 2017

Erendira Wallenda performed a series of stunts Thursday morning while dangling on a hoop attached to a helicopter hundreds of feet above Niagara Falls.

"It's kind of risky, but it's handsome in the same way, which I kind of think that that's what we do".

"There are no words; it was lovely", Wallenda said moments after returning to the ground.

Erendira Wallenda could be seen gracefully performing acrobatic moves - not out of the ordinary for a daredevil who's part of the famous Wallenda family.

A last name synonymous with high-flying stunts pulls off another one at Niagara Falls. Her husband said he struggled through similar conditions during his 2012 stunt above the falls.

Nik Wallenda's great-grandfather also died after falling from a tight-rope.

In the interim, he said, he hoped more people would come visit the area as a result of the publicity afforded his wife's stunt. During her performance, Wallenda broke the record for highest "Iron Jaw" hold, in which the performer dangles from her teeth.

"I know my limits".

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

At 8:30 a.m. Thursday, his aerialist wife with her own rich circus lineage stole his title - from 300 feet above the raging waters of Niagara Falls.

That, and bringing valuable publicity to Niagara Falls, New York.

Diandra Ruiz, of New Jersey, said she was wondering what was going on when she saw Erendira dangling from the helicopter.

The sun peaked out briefly before the flight as Erendiria busily stretched and chalked her hands with risen "like a dancer".
