ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Professional daredevil Nik Wallenda has completed an unharnessed tightrope walk high above the beach in Atlantic City.  

Thousands of people gathered to watch the attempt, including in boats, a helicopter and two banner planes. Wallenda traversed line connecting cranes in front of the Atlantic Club Casino Hotel and the Tropicana Casino & Resort.  

His tight rope was 100 feet in the air and 1,300 feet long.  

In June, Wallenda wowed the masses when he did a similar stunt 200 feet above Niagara Falls.
