Wallenda to discuss hanging by teeth over Niagara Falls

Erendira Wallenda plans helicopter stunt over Niagara Falls

Woman hangs by teeth over Niagara Falls

The aerialist's performance broke a world record, previously held by her husband, Nik Wallenda.

"This is something that we train for, so I'm not just going to go out there and be like, 'Oh I hope for the best", she said. "I felt good enough to where I was able to hang by my teeth a second time".

Despite performing a stunt most people would consider insane, her daredevil husband believed in his wife.

"There are no words".

Exactly five years after dare devil Nik Wallenda walked on a tight rope across Niagara Falls.

Before a global audience on Thursday morning, Wallenda twice dangled by her teeth from a helicopter a few hundred feet above Niagara Falls. Kevin Seneca, VP seneca nation board of directors, said the Seneca Gaming Corp. also chipped in $50,000 to assist her in her "date with history".

Wallenda was tethered to a hoop suspended from a helicopter 300 feet (91 meters) above the water Thursday.

"It was absolutely handsome", said Mrs. Wallenda, when asked to describe the feeling of being above the falls. "It billows up as you can tell by the spray". Her husband was in the helicopter during today's stunt.

"There's something nearly magical that draws you to it". She said her dentist made her a mouth guard that she will wear, but she will use her jaw muscles to avoid falling. From her father's side, seven generations were involved in performing stunts and they toured in Mexico City, NBC reported. Legislators thanked the couple for bringing such unique talent and world-renowned acts to Niagara Falls.

After Erendira landed safely back on the ground, she said she wanted more of the high-flying, death defying aerobatics.

Watch the stunt again in the video above. Majority Leader Randy R. Brandt said in May "we want to recapture that energy for our local economy".

Five members of the Wallenda circus troupe fell from a high-wire in Sarasota, Fla., in February while practising an eight-person pyramid.
