Wallenda Family Share Their Sides of What Happened During Circus Stunt Fall
A feud is erupting between members of America’s leading stunt family. In 2017, Nik Wallenda and his family were practicing an eight-person pyramid on a high wire with no net below. Five people fell 30 feet and were seriously injured including his cousin, Rietta, and sister, Lijana, who landed on her face. Nik and two other men were able to hold on to the wire. Rick Wallenda, Nik’s cousin and Rietta's sister, said the full story about what happened since the day of the accident has not been told.
