T.D.I.H. - Mar 22

On this date in 1978, Karl Wallenda, one of the Flying Wallendas, died while attempting to walk a tightrope between two hotels in Puerto Rico. He was 73 at the time. His great grandson Nik and various other members of the family continue to do high wire acts to this day. There is video of the fall available. I will not embed it, but here is a link to it.
