Woman with Spinal Cord Injury Goes Bungee Jumping

Karim Ladki sustained a C7 vertebrae fracture in 2007, eventually recovered from his injury, and started 9Lives Adventures after meeting several athletes with disabilities. 9Lives offers adrenaline fueled tours for people with disabilities.

The video below shows a paraplegic woman bungee jumping in Whistler, British Columbia as part of a 9Lives tour. Obviously, this type of activity is not for the faint of heart, but it's good to remember that there are more doors open to people with disabilities than most people tend to realize. One of those doors happens to be extreme sports.
