Sue Austin, a British woman, decided seven years ago that she wanted to go scuba diving. The problem? She had been confined to a wheelchair for the last eight years of her life. Determined to make her dream a reality, Sue worked with a team of diving experts and academics to create an underwater wheelchair. The chair has swimming floats and two dive propulsion vehicles, which Austin controls with her feet.
