Daredevil Nik Wallenda became the first person to walk on a tightrope across the Niagara Falls Friday night...He walked  1,800 feet across the falls separating the U.S. and Canada.

The seventh-generation member of the famed Flying Wallendas had long dreamed of pulling off the stunt, never before attempted. Other daredevils have wire-walked over the Niagara River but farther downstream and not since 1896.
