You may recall the article we featured in the Wire Rope Exchange last summer about the triumphant skywalk of Nik Wallanda over Niagara Falls. Well, the ‘King of the High Wire’ did it again – and this time with an added element of risk. According to CNN, “the 600-foot stroll was on a cable strung 180 feet above U.S. Highway 41 along the Sarasota, Florida, bay front. The 34-year-old, who hails from multiple generations of high-flying daredevils, was not wearing a safety tether, and there was no net below to catch him if he fell.”
