Nik Wallenda on volcano walk: 'I'm risking my life'
Wallenda told ABC News he has "a little bit more angst" than normal as he prepares to traverse an 1,800-foot wire across the crater of Nicaragua's Masaya Volcano.
Intense heat, poisonous gasses, molten lava. The conditions for Nik Wallenda's latest tightrope walk are downright hellish, and that's just the way he wants it. His walk across the Masaya Volcano in Nicaragua will broadcast live on ABC Wednesday, March 4. (March 1) Talk about a hot stunt! After traversing high wires above the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, and downtown Chicago, Wednesday night Nik Vallenda pulled off his most daring feat yet - crossing an active volcano! They call it the ‘Mouth of Hell' - and you can see why. He had to wear a gas mask to protect against the toxic fumes emanating from below. His wife Erendira also braved the volcano, hanging over the lava lake by nothing but her teeth! Nik Wallenda will walk across a tightrope over the active Masaya Volcano in Nicaragua, which will be his longest walk attempt yet. Sen.
