CHICAGO (CBS) — 50 feet up or 500 feet up, the king of the high-wire says what’s the difference. That as Nik Wallenda prepares to walk a tightrope about 500 feet above the Chicago River this fall.
CBS 2’s Roseanne Tellez talked with the daredevil.
Wallenda says he picked Chicago because he, “absolutely” loves the city.”
“Where can you find a more beautiful city with beautiful skylines like that right on the water?” he said.
But Wallenda won’t be checking out the skyline, when he attempts what he calls his most challenging tightrope walk yet.
