Woman in wheelchair takes thrilling plunge

Woman in wheelchair takes thrilling plunge


Woman in wheelchair takes thrilling plunge, Paraplegic woman goes bungee jumping, says she can’t wait to do it again (Video), A paraplegic straps in for the ride of her life — and says she can't wait to do it again. In this video, a paraplegic woman takes a thrilling ride off of a bridge in Whistler, British Columbia. Writing on her YouTube page, the jumper says, "First and definitely not the last time going bungee jumping in whistler, BC - Thank you 9Lives Adventures for making this happen!"

The jump was sponsored by the BC-based group 9Lives Adventures, an organization offering "an adrenaline-fueled tour operator catering to the physically disabled."

9Lives was founded by Karim Ladki, who suffered a C7 vertebrae fracture in 2007. Ladki eventually recovered from his injury but was inspired by his experience meeting with physically challenged athletes, particularly after a visit to the 2009 Paralympics.
