Watch a Paraplegic Girl Perform a Death-Defying Bungee Jump in Her Wheelchair
For many people, becoming paraplegic can be an unfortunate stumbling block in terms of accomplishing your life goals. Still, that should never stop you from trying anyway. The girl in this video proves that even an activity as extreme as bungee jumping can be wheelchair accessible.
Whistler in British Columbia seems to be a mecca for making seemingly impossible extreme sports achievements a reality. First, paralyzed skier Josh Dueck beat the odds on their slopes by landing a perfect back-flip on his sit-ski (the very trick that made him paralyzed in the first place). Now we have the girl in this video quenching her thirst for adrenaline by bungee jumping off the side of a bridge from her wheelchair.
This feat was largely made possible by an amazing company called 9Lives Adventures, who makes it possible for people with limited mobility to accomplish their extreme goals. We’re talking about wild stunts like race car driving, sky diving, skiing and whitewater rafting. You name it, and this dedicated team will make it happen. Of course, this definitely wouldn’t have been possible without a great deal of bravery from this amazing girl, who should inspire us all to never give up on our dreams.
