CBC News | Paraplegic bungee jumps off B.C. gorge in wheelchair

Christine Rougoor of Niagara Falls, Ont., took the plunge into a Whistler, B.C., gorge, strapped to her wheelchair, and the videotaped bungee jump has become a sensation on YouTube.

Rougoor, 25. was left a paraplegic after a motocross accident in 2008, but that hasn’t stopped her from living life to the fullest.

She won the trip and a chance to do the jump last week by submitting a video of her shooting guns, riding bikes designed for paraplegics and playing tennis in her wheelchair to a company that supports disabled adventure seekers.
