Angel Wallenda: The Associated Press reported erroneously Friday that Angel and Steven Wallenda performed as members of the Flying Wallendas. Steven Wallenda formed his own high-wire act and the couple were never members of the troupe once headed by his uncle and family patriarch, Karl Wallenda.
Also, the Associated Press erroneously reported that Steven Wallenda and his 9-year-old son are Karl Wallenda's last direct descendants. One daughter and four grandchildren of Karl Wallenda still perform in separate acts. Another daughter has retired from performing.
