Chicago: Nik Wallenda certainly knows how to wow the world. The daredevil stunned a number of onlookers by walking on a tightrope blindfolded between the Marina City west tower to the Marina City east tower in Chicago.

Interestingly, Nik did not use a harness belt or safety nets to prevent a mishap.

A number of people also gathered to watch the daredevil perform another life threatening stunt by walking a tightrope uphill at a 19-degree angle from the Marina City west tower across the Chicago River to the top of the Leo Burnett Building in Chicago.

Reports suggest that Wallenda took about six and a half minutes to cover a distance of 454-feet from the Marina City west tower and completed the blindfolded walk in just one minute, 17 seconds.
