NIAGARA FALLS, NY - A lifelong dream come true: Daredevil Nik Wallenda completed his Walk in 2 History, successfully crossing the mighty Niagara Falls from the United States to Canada on a wire.

Western New Yorkers were joined by thousands of visitors from all over the world in Niagara Falls, New York and in Canada to see history be made.

Nik told 2 On Your Side he has always dreamt of crossing Niagara Falls on a wire in honor of his great-grandfather who died attempting a similar stunt.

Canadian officials were standing by to check his passport as he stepped off the wire and officially entered the country.

Wallenda acted like he forgot his passport but had actually been carrying it with him in a waterproof bag.
