Three people in wheelchairs descend Congress Center wall

Two men and a woman in wheelchairs rappelled down the 25-meter high wall of the Congress Center in Prague on Saturday, as part of the “Pojď dál” festival marking the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Jedličkův Institute for children with physical disabilities. The three disabled sportspeople were aided by professional mountain climbers as they scaled down the wall. They originally requested to go down one of the supports of the nearby Nusle bridge, but did not receive permission. The day-long festival also featured a rich musical and artistic program.
