Disability is not inability. Alexander Avdevich, from Lida in Grodno region, is a living proof of this statement and this is why.
Are you afraid of Google maps?
It takes a lot of courage to go skydiving and even more of it is needed when you’re a wheelchair user.
It’s not every day you see or hear someone with a disability jumping with a parachute. Well, today is the day.
Attached to a professional instructor, Sasha did a tandem jump from a 3 kilometre height.
The yound daredevil did it for a very sweet reason – in the name of love to his girlfriend.
Sharing his skydiving experience, Sasha took to Facebook page where he wrote:
“Before the jump the instructor asked only one question: “Man, are you afraid of Google maps?”
As to the wheelchair, the guys didn’t even paid attention to it and refused to see it at all.
I mean, we even didn’t discuss the matter. You know why? Cause that’s a bullshit.”
The 31-year-old is one of the most recognizable wheelchair users in Belarus. Seven years ago a road accident made Sasha disabled.
Since then the man moves only in a wheelchair, but that doesn’t stop him from living a life to the fullest.
BelarusFeed already wrote about his unprecendent 3,000km trip around Europe on a hand-bike.
His route included Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Belgium and other European states.
