Daredevil crosses Niagara Falls on tightrope
Nik Wallenda has succeeded in his attempt to make a 1,800ft (550m) walk from the US to Canada on a two-inch (61mm) wire.
Mr Wallenda is the seventh generation of the famed Flying Wallendas, who have performed for more than 200 years.
He wore a safety harness, a precaution insisted on by ABC, the US broadcaster which sponsored the live broadcast of his walk.
John Percy from the Niagara Tourism Convention was amongst those watching, he told BBC presenter Adnan Nawaz more about it.
