Anything he can do she can do BITER!
Five years ago, famed daredevil Nik Wallenda broke the world record for highest suspension over Niagara Falls when he walked across the waterfalls on a tightrope.
On Thursday, Erendira Wallenda celebrated the anniversary of her husband’s record like any loving wife would — by breaking it!
The aerialist made history after she dangled 300 ft. above Niagara Falls suspended by a helicopter in a dazzling, death-defying stunt!
The 38-year-old outdid her famous husband by hanging by her ankles, toes, and teeth — yes, TEETH — to a hoop attached to a helicopter hovering above Horseshoe Falls, the largest of Niagara’s three falls.
She told performers before the dangerous stunt:
“If a guy can do it a girl can do it too. We just do it with a little more grace.”
And that she did! Despite strong winds, the mother-of-three was putting on her aerial performance a little after 8:30 a.m., and hung by her teeth twice for about 20 seconds apiece:
Do NOT try this at home. Or anywhere else. Erendira Wallenda right now over Niagara Falls. https://t.co/Vb5WqDBeCG #HamOnt pic.twitter.com/qzgQvkhj1o

Erendira and Nik, who was in the helicopter btw, shared a kiss and hug after she safely made it back to the ground.
In a press conference after the performance, Nik introduced his wife as “the new world record holder,” gushing to reporters:
“It was absolutely amazing to be out there watching her ├óΓé¼┬ª she had a huge grin on her face the whole time.”
Awww, how supportive! Not that she needs any support other than a sturdy mouth guard:
Officials declared June 15, 2017 Erendira Wallenda Day in Niagara County, New York.
