Florida man set to walk across Nicaraguan volcano

Posted: Updated:

 American acrobat Nik Wallenda says he is going to walk across the active Masaya Volcano in Nicaragua live for the world to see this March.

The stunt is set for March 4 and it will be broadcasted live on ABC.

To train for the 1,800-hundred-foot high-wire walk, the Florida man will train wearing a blindfold and gas mask to prepare for the volcano’s sulfuric gases.

He is saying it is going to be his “most-dangerous” walk yet.
