Kid Lands Double Back-flip.... In A Wheelchair or "You Will Believe A Man Can Fly"

Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham is an 18 year old guy from Las Vegas, Nevada who works with disabled children, trying to get them to see their crutches or wheelchairs are not traps, but toys. He travels all over the U.S. talking to kids with physical disabilities and teach them how to handle themselves in the world. How does he get this across to these kids? He is a wheelchair himself! Aaron was born with spina bifida, which is a birth defect where a person's spine does not fully form during the initial month of a baby's development.

But this physical limitation has not stopped him from fully enjoying life. Not only is he incredibly active, he can pull a double back-flip with his wheelchair! You may want to call 'shenanigans', but watch this video before you do.

That was just EPIC! If he can do stuff like that, it's proof positive that anything is possible if you believe! How can you NOT be inspired by this?!
