Niagara Falls stunt to go ahead
Friday 17 February 2012
Canada has cleared the way for a member of the Flying Wallenda family of daredevils to attempt a tightrope walk over Niagara Falls during the summer.
Nik Wallenda, 33, got permission on the US side of the falls last September when the Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, signed a bill giving him one year to perform the feat, which Mr Wallenda says will be the first attempt in more than a century.
Canada's Niagara Parks Commission voted unanimously to allow Mr Wallenda to go ahead, reversing its earlier decision.
