Nik Wallenda Is Feeling “Angst” Before Tonight’s Volcano High Wire Walk

Nik Wallenda will attempt to successfully walk the hire wire over an active volcano tonight on national television. Although Wallenda has made death-defying stunts before, this one has the extra added pressure of being the highest and longest he’s ever done. Wallenda said he’s feeling a “little bit more angst” ahead of the attempt. He will deal with wind and heat. Wallenda will wear a face mask and oxygen tank to protect against the toxic gases of the Masaya volcano in Nicaragua. Volcano Live will air on ABC at 8:00 pm Eastern on Wednesday night.
