FLASH: Imagine crossing Times Square on a high wire between skyscrapers, 25 stories above the street. Tune in for the video of the feat.
If all goes well, that will be reality Sunday for 2 siblings from the famed Flying Wallendas circus family. Their latest daredevil stunt will be streamed live Sunday at 8:00p EDT on ABC.
Nik Wallenda is a 7th-generation acrobat, but this time, he is nervous. As his sister, Lijana Wallenda, plans to join him for the 1st time since her near-fatal accident in Y 2017, when she broke nearly every bone in her face.
The brother sister act will walk from opposite ends of the 1,300-foot wire (396-meter) suspended between the towers, crossing each other in the middle.
They will be wearing tethered safety harnesses required by the city in case they fall.
Have a terrific week.
