Watch a Paraplegic Girl Go Bungee Jumping, Wheelchair and All [VIDEO]
A video of a paraplegic girl bungee jumping, wheelchair and all, is getting a bunch of attention online. Her name is Christine Rougoor, and she was paralyzed in a motocross accident in 2008.
The bungee jump happened because of a Canadian charity called 9Lives Adventures, which helps disabled people take part in extreme sports.
They did it on a bridge in British Columbia – About 75 miles north of Vancouver. And since she couldn’t climb over the railing, they picked her up in her chair and just threw her. I’m not sure why she couldn’t just do the whole thing without the wheelchair. Something about tossing a person in a wheelchair off of a bridge, bungee cord or not, just looks wrong.
