Man walks on a rope – level 3

Man walks on a rope – level 3

Famous tightrope walker Nik Wallenda is at it again. This time, he shocked commuters with a high wire walk over a Florida highway without a safety harness.

The world record holder climbed 200 hundred feet into the air for this daredevil walk in his hometown. Battling a steady wind, it took Nik about 15 minutes to undergo the feat.

Interesting words: tightrope (rope stretched between two points), commuter (person who has to travel to work every day), wire (metal rope), harness (set of ropes used to stop somebody from falling), undergo (do), feat (action).
