Erendira did so by dangling 300 feet above Niagara Falls by her teeth on Thursday, the Washington Post reports.

"I respect this man so much more", she said of her husband after landing.

Footage shows the acrobat hooking her feet over the circle before hanging upside down with her arms stretched toward the water.

Erendira broke a record her husband set in 2011 by hanging from his teeth 250 feet in the air.

A last name synonymous with high-flying stunts pulls off another one at Niagara Falls.

Erendira Wallenda said her training in the rain and mist of Florida, where they live, helped prepare her for the conditions expected on Thursday.
