Tune Your Engine - underwater wheelchair

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:08 pm on 16 July 2013

Sue Austin floats like a mermaid among tropical fish and colorful coral reefs on a deep sea dive unlike any other.

She performed in the build up to the London paralympics and has big plans for using her underwater wheelchair to change attitudes toward people with disabilties.
