Superstar daredevil Nik Wallenda's walk over Niagara Falls won't go exactly as he planned.
ABC, which is broadcasting the unprecedented stunt June 15, is making the Sarasota native wear a tether.
"It seems as though that's what I'm going to be doing," Wallenda told The Associated Press on Monday as he prepared to walk a practice wire outside the Seneca Niagara Casino.
"I'm upset. I'm not used to it," he said. "I've never worn a tether before so it's just something else I have to contend with when I'm out there."
