NEW YORK (AP) — Two siblings from the famed Flying Wallendas safely crossed New York’s Times Square on a tightrope strung between two skyscrapers 25 storeys above the pavement…

The stunt took place on Sunday when two siblings from the famed Flying Wallendas (vah-LEN’-dahs) circus family streamed their daredevil antics live on Sunday.

Nik Wallenda is a seventh-generation acrobat. His sister, Lijana (lee-WAH’-nah) Wallenda, Joined him for the first time since her near-fatal accident in 2017, when she broke nearly every bone in her face.

The siblings walked from opposite ends of the 1,300-foot wire (396-metre) suspended between the towers, crossing each other in the middle.
