Just five years ago her husband, Nik Wallenda walked across the Niagara Falls on a high wire.

Now, it was Erindira Wallenda's turn to tempt fate.

"You can't do what we do and be freaked out," she said. "If you're scared of it, then it becomes dangerous. I respect what I do, but I definitely will be taking in the view. That's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but I'm definitely not fearful."
