Wallenda completes high-wire stunt (w/video)

SARASOTA — Nik Wallenda, star of this season’s Circus Sarasota, survived his death-defying hire-wire walk between One Watergate Condominium and Sarasota’s Ritz-Carlton Hotel this morning.

The stunt, which spanned more than 600 feet across at more than 200 feet high, was performed in front of a couple hundred onlookers.

During Circus Sarasota, which kicks off Feb. 12, Wallenda will perform his family’s famous seven-person pyramid high-wire walk.
