He's 18. And he's paraplegic. And he makes us look like complete and utter wusses. Aaron "Wheelz" Fotheringham
is so good in a wheelchair, he can do backflips. Two to be exact.
Catapulted by a specially adapted bungee cord, Aaron rides his wheelchair into a ramp, slinging himself into the air and spinning a clear 720 degrees in the air.
He'd done it before, quite a few times, but not without the all-important wheel-based landing, resulting in more than a few nasty crashes.
Despite being born with spina bifida, Aaron refused to let that stop his pursuit of thrills
, first perfecting the wheelchair-based grind, carve and powerslide before moving onto the full-fledged backflip and, now, double backflip.
Check out the video of the stunt in question below.
