Successful stunt by Erendira Wallenda

A trapeze artist from a renowned family of daredevils has successfully performed a stunt that involved hanging by her teeth over Niagara Falls.

The stunt by aerialist Erendira Vasquez Wallenda comes on the fifth anniversary of her husband's tightrope walk over the falls.

Before the stunt, the Wallenda family and crew members prayed together.

Wallenda performed a variety of moves while the chopper  hovered 100 metres above the Horseshoe Falls.

Members of the Wallenda family have gained fame as a circus act.

In 2012, Nik Wallenda walked 550 metres from the American side of the falls to the Canadian side.

A couple hundred people took in the stunt on the Canadian side of the Falls.
