But for Christine Rougoor hurling yourself from a ledge it a yes-yes, even though she's wheelchair bound.

The jump in Whistler in British Columbia was organised by the 9Lives Adventures Inc (now there's a lawsuit waiting to happen).

“The chair provides much more stability for the bungee jump. It prevents the blood from rolling around the body too fast and prevents black-outs,” explained the founder of the company to the Telegraph.
