Kicker – High wire, prime time praises

NICK EICHER, HOST: The Wallenda family has been breaking records for years, but this week Nik Wallenda did something no one has ever done before. He walked a high wire over an active volcano. 

An ABC special called Volcano Live! With Nik Wallenda followed his trek high above a crater of molten lava in a volcano in Nicaragua.

He wore a gas mask to protect him from the toxic fumes.  

As he normally does during such walks, he prayed to God as he carefully placed each step. Listen here and you’ll be able to pick up the wind gusts around him.

AUDIO: Jesus, thank you Lord. Calm that storm.

He covered 1,800 feet and in about two hours became the first man ever to traverse an active volcano.

It’s The World and Everything in It.
