Daredevil Many years ago, a few stunt men walked across Niagara Falls on tight ropes. Officials banned people from doing this due to the danger. Well, this Friday night, Nik Wallenda, will try to become the first person in 116 years to walk over the Falls. The United States and Canada granted Nik an exception. Over the last 50 years, tourism has decreased dramatically and this is one event that could help the local economy. What a brave guy!
