Thousands of people watched from the United States as Nik walked across the massive water which took him around 25 minutes to complete. Daredevil Nik Wallenda started his historic mission from Goat Island, US and finished at Table Rock Welcome Center, Canada.

“It’s all about the concentration, the focus, and it all goes back to the training. You know, in the middle of the wire at one point, I just started thinking about great-grandfather and paying tribute to him and all the walks that he did”
– Nik Wallenda after completing his mission.
Apparently Nik is not the first person to cross Niagara. On October 24, 1901, 63-year-old Michigan school teacher Annie Edson Taylor was the first person to go over the falls in a barrel as a publicity stunt.
