Lai Chi-wai is a former rock-climbing champion who was paralyzed 10 years ago in a car accident – but that hasn’t stopped his desire for adventure, as he recently attempted to climb a skyscraper to raise money for charity.
Lai was actually strapped into his wheelchair as he pulled himself, one arm over the other, up a rope attached to the top of the 1,050-foot Nina Tower in Hong Kong.
Unfortunately, when he got up to 800 feet, wind gusts made things impossible for him. His wheelchair began to spin and Lai began to fear for his life. He ended up calling off the climb, just short of his goal.
