Paralysed thrillseeker paraglides solo off Coronet Peak

A thrillseeking young man who was left paralysed on one of his adventures, has realised a dream of paragliding solo.

Six years after losing movement from the chest down, Jezza Williams launched off Coronet Peak in Queenstown, piloting a specialised paraglider.

Williams described it as an "unbelievable experience".

The adrenaline junkie has refused to let his fateful canyoning accident in Switzerland determine his future, having previously sky dived, white water rafted and tamed the Mongol Rally without the use of his legs.
