WHEELCHAIR BASEJUMPER

THROWING himself off 1,100ft bridges in a wheelchair, this is the PARALYSED base jumper who knows no fear. Stunts include jumping from bridges and being piggy-backed off the edge of a cliff to donning a wing-suit and gliding for hundreds of feet at speeds of up to 80-miles-per-hour before releasing his parachute. These incredible photographs show base-jumper Lonnie Bissonnette, 48, enjoying his passion to the fullest – despite being unable to walk or use his left arm.
