Nik Wallenda escapes injury in high wire accident
An accident has sent five members of a high-wire act to hospitals in Florida.
Two days before Circus Sarasota was to open, the performers yesterday were practicing an eight-person pyramid when five lost their balance and fell 30 feet to the ground.
The stunt involved famed high wire walker Nik Wallenda, who became the first to walk the tightrope over Niagara Falls.
Wallenda managed to catch himself and wasn't hurt.
