LITTLE COLORADO RIVER, Arizona (Reuters) - Daredevil Nik Wallenda stepped on to a high wire stretched over the Grand Canyon on Sunday, beginning a death-defying walk broadcast live around the world.
The self-described "King of the High Wire," Wallenda is walking across a two-inch-(5-cm-) diameter steel cable rigged across a remote section of the Grand Canyon with nothing but the Little Colorado River more than a quarter-mile below.
