The Wallendas Are At It Again

June 24, 2019

The Wallenda family are walking the tightrope again. ICYMI:

This walk happened last night, just a couple years after Lijana Wallenda suffered serious injuries in a highwire fall.

I can't watch them without thinking of their great-grandfather. Karl Wallenda was walking the wire when the unthinkable happened. The walk was being broadcast live, so viewers saw the entire thing. It is one of the reasons the sibling had tethers attached -  on the off chance they fall off the wire, they would still survive. 

This the the video of Karl's final walk and warning: The video is disturbing to watch.
