Hangs by Teeth over Niagara Falls!

Hangs by Teeth over Niagara Falls!

After she landed, Wallenda said the stunt "felt unbelievable". She used a Hula-Hoop-type device to hang from the helicopter as it flew 300 feet above the Falls.

In a further theft of Nik Wallenda's thunder, Erendira smashed her husband's record on the fifth anniversary of his famous tightrope walk across Niagara Falls.

Wallenda also had a message for young girls after her stunt - you can do anything a guy can do, with a little more grace.

USA media said her stunt set a Guinness World Record for height, breaking a record established by her husband Nik when hanging from his teeth 250 feet (76 meters) above Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri.

Daredevil and professional aerialist Erendira Wallenda broke the world record Thursday for the highest suspension over Niagara Falls.

Erendira was tethered to a hoop suspended from a helicopter.

Spectators watch as Erendira Wallenda performs a series of acrobatic maneuvers. "You just get lost in the moment".

The $120,000 stunt was jointly sponsored by the city of Niagara Falls, the Niagara County Legislature and the Seneca Niagara Resort and Casino.

Wallenda and her husband both come from a long line of aerialists and circus performers. That, and bringing valuable publicity to Niagara Falls, New York.

"It gives me goose bumps", he said.

Upon the conclusion of the flight, the Wallendas spoke about the stunt and the impact they hope it leaves.

Erendira told reporters afterward that "it felt amazing" to be high above the Falls, but she wasn't expecting it to be so windy.

"I have not seen anything like that and honestly don't know if they even exist at this point", Tompkins said.

Erendira said she remembers wondering to herself five years ago watching her husband cross the falls what doing something similar would look and feel like.
