Erendira Wallenda Performs Nail-Biting Routine While Dangling From Helicopter
Erindera Wallenda says hanging upside down 150 feet above the ground is no big deal.
She should know. She’s been doing stunts since she was a toddler.
The wife of daredevil Nik Wallenda thrilled a crowd of 100,000 at a NASCAR race in Charlotte, North Carolina on Sunday.
Suspended from a large ring dangling from a helicopter, Wallenda performed a breathtaking routine while hanging on by her toes.
“To me, it is like an aerial ballet,” the 34-year-old INSIDE EDITION.
Husband Nik, a descendant of the famous Flying Wallendas, wowed spectators in 2012 by walking a tight wire over Niagara Falls. Last year, he walked a high wire between skyscrapers in Chicago.
At the North Carolina car race, he was happy to have the day off.
“Nik was like, ‘This is pretty cool. I don’t have to risk my life today, I can just carry the bags,’’’ his wife said.
She, too, was born to a circus family.
“I’ve been practicing since I was two years old,” she said.
