Erendira Wallenda sets aerial stunt record

- Usually, Atlantic City tourists have their eyes on the prize inside the casinos.  But Thursday afternoon, all eyes were looking towards the sky as Erendira Wallenda broke the record for the longest aerial stunt.

The daredevil wife of Nik Wallenda pulled of the amazing feat with flips and a number of other moves while she hung outside of a helicopter.

Nik told NJ.com that Erendira couldn't count of the flips as she spun around -- she had to focus on the stunt.  But he said he counted at least 35 flips in just one minute, which was her goal.

Nik and Erendira have been married since 1999 after Nik famously proposed to her from the middle of a high wire.  They have three kids together.
