Five years after American tightrope walker Nik Wallenda walked over a wire over Niagara Falls, his wife plans to cross the falls hanging from a helicopter with her teeth. But that's not the way husband and wife Nik and Erendira Wallenda like to see Niagara Falls.

Erendira was tethered to a hoop suspended from a helicopter.

Erendira Wallenda planned the stunt to mark the fifth anniversary of her husband's televised death-defying 1,800 foot tightrope walk from the NY side of Niagara Falls into Canada. The city and Niagara County Legislature each committed $35,000 to the stunt with the goal of boosting tourism.

"I felt good enough to where I was able to hang by my teeth a second time", she said. It was just sort of like watching a shadow, so it was hard to know exactly what she was doing.

She said her dentist made her a mouth guard that she will wear, but she will use her jaw muscles to avoid falling.

This time Nik's wife Erendira has broken a new record by performing a insane stunt over Niagara Falls.

"As an artist and a daredevil I guess, there is something abut it, something nearly magical that draws you to it", she said.

Spectators watch as Erendira Wallenda performs a series of acrobatic maneuvers.

"If a guy can do it, a girl can do it, too", she said.

In 1978, family member Karl Wallenda died in a high-wire accident while attempting to walk between two towers of the Condado Plaza Hotel located in San Juan, Puerto Rico, according to the Associated Press. "Here is the new world record holder, my attractive wife, Erendira Wallenda".

They spoke of their fascination with Niagara Falls and their long-held hope that one day, the family will find a way to build a permanent performance center on site.
