Daredevil Nik Wallenda took on the active Masaya Volcano in Nicaragua this evening in an ABC special, Volcano Live! As the title suggests, the highwire walker attempted an 1,800-foot walk over the active volcano.
Wallenda is part of the seventh generation of the wire-walking family, whose outrageous stunts have brought fame and tragedy to the family.
