WATCH: Look ma, no hands!

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

Aerialist Erendira Vasquez Wallenda performed a series of movements while on a hoop suspended from the helicopter, including hanging from her teeth, her toes and her knees.

Wallenda was tethered by her waist during the stunt to comply with a New York state law that requires safety harnesses for performers more than 6 metres in the air.

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

Wallenda's aerial stunt came on the fifth anniversary of her husband's tightrope walk over the falls.

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