In 2017, while practicing their dangerous 8-person pyramid while walking on a high wire, the unthinkable happened as someone lost balance and several members of the stunt came falling to the floor nearly 30 feet below. The video of the event was released against Nik Wallenda’s objection.
The group had rehearsed the stunt many times. This time, you can see one member begin to lose balance, and the whole pyramid comes crashing down. Five of the members fell to the floor. Everyone survived, though there were injuries.
Nik, if you’re checking in, please don’t hit ‘play’… we know how you already lived through it.
