Paraplegic woman goes bungee jumping, says she can’t wait to do it again (VIDEO)


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.
