Nik Wallenda Completes Death-Defying Skyscraper Wire Walks

The daredevil completed a death-defying double walk in Chicago.

Oh -- he also wore a blindfold for one of his walks.

Wallenda crossed a distance of 454 feet from one skyscraper to another, all at a 19-degree incline, an angle four degrees steeper than the 15-degree practice tightrope. The tightrope began at 588 feet from the ground and ended at 671 feet.

"That cable looked like it was going straight up," he said.

The second leg of his performance featured a 94-foot walk between two towers, blindfolded and 543 feet from the ground.
