How To Watch 'Highwire Live in Times Square with Nik Wallenda' Online

(CNN)The Flying Wallendas astonished the world once again, becoming the first to cross New York's Times Square on a tightrope 25 stories above the city streets.

A huge crowd at the iconic NY square was pulling for famed daredevil Nik Wallenda and his sister Lijana as they made the nerve-racking 1,300 foot crossing between 1 Times Square and 2 Times Square. His sister, Lijana (lee-WAH'-nah) Wallenda, plans to join him for the first time since her near-fatal accident in 2017, when she broke almost every bone in her face.

Their latest daredevil stunt was streamed live on ABC and watched by thousands of spectators from below.

The two will walk from opposite ends of a 1,300-foot wire suspended between skyscrapers, crossing each other in the middle, if all goes according to plan.

What time does Nik Wallenda's Times Square highwire walk start?

Nik Wallenda's high-wire walks above Niagara Falls, the Chicago skyline, and the Little Colorado River Gorge near Grand Canyon National Park were broadcast on national television.
