US daredevil Nik Wallenda became the first man to cross Grand Canyon on a tightrope Sunday, organizers said.

The 34-year-old, who walked across the Niagara Falls last year, said winds were higher than expected as he crossed a Canyon tributary gorge some 1,500 feet above the Little Colorado River in eastern Arizona.
