A woman in a wheelchair is thrown off a bridge
At her request, we should emphasize.
Christi 'LynX' Rougoor became paraplegic after a motocross accident but still wanted to experience adrenaline rushes, so a group called 9Lives Adventures helped her bungee jump.
As to the question of why she was in a wheelchair for the event, a paraplegic noted in the YouTube comments that "because the legs and hips of a paraplegic will atrophy, so by the conventional method of strapping the bungee cord to the feet would instantly dislocate her legs after the first drop."

Hadn't seen that - but I think I'll defer on posting it. :.)Delete
There are also pictures floating around of people crowdsurfing in wheelchairs...just be sure to set the brakes. Apparently it's harder than it looks.ReplyDelete
