NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- Siblings Nik and Lijana Wallenda conquered a high-wire stunt above Times Square on Sunday.

Nik admitted that he freaked out when his balancing pole slipped during the act.

The scare occurred as his sister knelt so he could step over her while they crossed paths on the wire 25 stories above the pavement.

Lijana Wallenda was performing with him for the first time since her near-fatal fall in 2017. 

After conmpleting their latest stunt, Nik Wallenda says he's been eyeing an "active volcano."
