A 15-year-old from North Carolina will never forget his time behind the wheel. A little short for his age, he created quite the scene when the Trailblazer he was in looked like it was driving itself. The sheriff stopped the car within minutes and found that the boy did have a permit but was under five feet tall, making himself invisible. However the boy's father doesn't understand why his son's height is getting national attention.

Tonight is an historic night for one daredevil in Niagara Falls. The famed Flying Wallenda family are nervous about tonight's tightrope over Niagara Falls, a first of its kind. Nic Wallenda is scheduled to walk from the U.S. side of the falls to the Canadian side. He will be using a safety tether. And yes, he will also be carrying his passport as he crosses country lines!

He made headlines nine months ago when he appeared on the steps at Berlin City Hall saying he lived in the woods for the past five years.

The young man who identified himself only as "Ray" is actually a 20-year-old Dutch citizen named Robin. His original story began to unravel when he couldn't provide police with specific details about his life in the woods and how he survived. The boy's family has been searching for him for months.
