(WIVB/AP) — She did it!

Erendira Wallenda was tethered from a helicopter as she hung from the aircraft by her teeth over Niagara Falls on Thursday. And it was televised live.

The acrobat’s husband, Nik Wallenda, walked an 1,800-foot tightrope from the New York side of Niagara Falls into Canada. His stunt was also televised. Erendira’s stunt was done on the five-year anniversary of Nik’s tightrope walk across the falls.

Erendira also hoped to break her husband’s record of hanging by his teeth at 200 feet.

The daredevil couple hoped millions would watch the stunt around the world and be inspired to visit Niagara Falls.
