Nik Wallenda walks on a rope high above the ground. It is dangerous. Many people know him. He has some world records. This time, he showed what he can do in Florida. He walked over a road. He had nothing to protect him if he fell.

He walked 65 metres. It was in his hometown, Sarasota, Florida. He had problems with strong wind. Nik walked 15 minutes on the rope above a big road.

Interesting words: rope (long line from textile), hometown (place where you were born).
