Nik Wallenda walks tightrope 450m above Grand Canyon

NO net, no harness.

Daredevil Nik Wallenda has just become the first man to walk across the Grand Canyon on a tightrope.

As his family watched on, the record-breaker walked 450m above the canyon rigged up with multiple cameras and microphones - without a harness.

It what may seem like a strange move, he wore blue jeans to complete the stunt.

His shoes were hand made by his mother.
