A grand daredevil

Nik Wallenda made a terrifying, 23-minute tightrope trek across a quarter-mile chasm near the Grand Canyon

On Sunday, Nik Wallenda walked across a quarter-mile chasm near the Grand Canyon, with only a 2-inch-thick steel cable between him and a 1,500-foot fall. "It took every bit of me to stay focused that entire time," Wallenda told Reuters.

Wallenda had to stop and crouch twice as winds whipped around him and the cable swayed. Throughout much of the walk, he prayed aloud: "These feel slippery, there's dust on the cable... Thank you Jesus, for this beautiful view. ... Praise you, Jesus. Oh, I love you. Thank you, Jesus. ... Lord, help this cable calm down. ... Yes, Jesus. Oh, you're my savior. Yes, Jesus. Yes, Jesus. ... God, you're so good."
