A video of a paraplegic woman doing a bungee jump in a wheelchair has gone viral.

Christi "LynX" Rougoor suffered a motocross accident when she was 21-years-old, which meant she was confined to a wheelchair.

But she has never stopped looking for an extreme sports rush, and that is how she ended up bungee jumping in Whistler.

The Canadian dropped 160ft with 9Lives - an organisation that caters for disabled adventure seekers.

On the 9Lives website, it says that Christi is "desperate to try bungee jumping".

It looks like that box is well and truly ticked!
