It was the faceplant seen around the world. Aaron Fotheringham, also known as Aaron Wheelz, is a 29-year-old extreme sports athlete who uses a wheelchair. He attempted a massive flip after soaring off a jump ramp on “America’s Got Talent: Extreme,” but ate it on his first attempt. He slammed face first into the padded ramp on the other side. But with will and determination, he tried again and nailed the landing, dazzling the crowd of spectators.
