Not to be a jerk but...couldn't they have just sat him down like right there in the sand...?
@HardCorps, people get heavier when their limbs don't work
@HardCorps, Or just thrown him. They clearly have enough people.
@TotalSchediophiliac, I like the way you think
@HardCorps, Probably too much work and/or risk for it to be a pleasant experience. This way he gets at least a bit of independence.
@HardCorps, you ever sit in the waves? You get sand all over your crotch and it will not leave.
@Tc Baratie, I think that is the least of his problems
@HardCorps, I also hate to be a jerk... Buuuutt they didn't actually make that chair they have rental ones in Santa cruz
@HardCorps, this wheelchair actually floats! And very easy to make too. Imagine not being able to move your body and then being able to float. I bet it was awesome.
@HardCorps, but that wouldn't get them any Facebook likes so what's the point?
@HardCorps, I don't know if you actually care for an answer but as someone with nearly seven years medical experience; placing a paraplegic directly on the ground would be very difficult to get back into a chair, especially if they're wet (ie: after a shower, in this case the ocean). Also it would be very dangerous for him as he would be robbed of his ability to move as he's dependent on his chair. Plus there's the possibility that he has pressure wounds, very common (unfortunately) for wheelchair bound people, and it's not wise to get them wet.
@HardCorps, or just left him at home.... i mean whats he gonna do, fall?
@Strange Tamer, oh my god.. Too funny!
@TotalSchediophiliac, *begins clapping slowly*
@Generic Hot Chick, yeah but if they had enough strength, it'd be beneficial to get him in the water to stretch out his limbs. It can be very therapeutic.
@Ruupasya, oh yeah, definitely. So long as there were no other complicating factors.
@HardCorps, As I return from a week-long Hawaii trip to home, and as I spend my summers in San Diego, I can tell you ball chafe is not pleasant.
Unlike him.. This gives me feels.
@FoodieAsFuk, oh the savagery is strong with you.
I bet he didn't feel much of anything.
@Bobaganusche88, Savage man! Savage!
@Bobaganusche88, I feel so bad for up voting you. But I did.
Faith in humanity is secure
I sea what they did there.
@stolz, *Commander Punsniper we have a target spotted*
@Bob the Pink Hoe, sorry pink hoe's not a valid unit designation, calls for airstrike on Bob's op address. Slow clap for family that made the surf their son's turf...
If I knew I could never walk again or have any sensation in my legs, I'd want to have them amputated. I mean, your legs account for nearly half of your weight. You'd be a LOT more mobile without lugging that much dead weight around, and therefore not have to rely on others as much.
@I Are Lebo, plus, if you walk around on your hands all the time, your upper body will get RIPPED.
I know that beach. Those sand usable wheelchairs are available there to just use. They didn't build it.
@knite, Jesus I thought everyone actually thought they made it, thank you
Water hits, turns upside down. Drowns.. That escalated quickly..
Not to be a d!ck but i think that's an ocean
*throws jacks all over beach*
@Whitehammer, congratulations, you're a horrible person
@Whitehammer, You monster.
Or you know a tube
Okay I'll say it, d'aaawwww
1. That woman in front looks like she's trying to stop them
2. If he's paralyzed, will he even be able to feel the water?
@The Tower Of Plimps, not everyone who uses a wheelchair is without sensation in their legs. Some have partial sensation, or have a condition unrelated to paralysis that makes it difficult or impossible to walk, such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy.
I feel like the use of special in this pic might be a bit... unusual
He fell off the chair... ironic enough, his name was bob.... damn im horrible :(
Unless that family invented that wheelchair then they didn't create it. They have those at a few of the beaches here in Southern California
@HardCorps, those wheels look like they're designed to roll through the sand so he can actually go on the beach
If he has a wheelchair how is going to feel the sea unless he gets at least waist high if thats the case why not just get a boat instead of building an aqua chair that will absolutely be overturned by the waves
@m4x3240, not everyone who uses a wheelchair is without sensation in their legs. Some have partial sensation, or have a condition unrelated to paralysis that makes it difficult or impossible to walk, such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy.
Loved this episode of Pimp my ride
