Just because someone happens to be paraplegic, that doesn't mean they can't do some seriously awesome stuff. Just take a look at Christine Rougoor here, bungee jumping off a bridge in Whistler, British Columbia, and having the time of her life.

According to the company behind the event, 9Lives Adventures, the wheelchair actually makes the extreme sport much safer, helping prevent blackouts and keeping the whole thing a lot more stable. So that's nice.

We've seen another paraplegic person performing an amazing feat before - the world's first double backflip on a wheelchair. Check out Aaron "Wheelz" Fotheringham doing the seemingly impossible below, and prepare to wince. In a good way.
