Wheelchair-bound woman goes bungee-jumping

(CNN) - One woman who has been wheelchair bound her whole life, got her extreme sports wish fulfilled this past weekend.

Check out the video. 

In it, you'll see a group of people hoist the woman in a wheelchair over a bridge for her first bungee jump.  

You can hear the 25-year-old woman scream with joy.  

She took the plunge after winning a contest sponsored by an adventure company specializing in helping people with disabilities achieve their extreme sport dreams.

And just in case you were wondering, organizers say it's perfectly safe to bungee jump in a wheelchair.
