Blind skydivers put their skills to the test

Sunday was a thrill of a lifetime for twenty students from the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired.

The high school students, both blind and visually impaired, jumped from a plane in San Marcos early Sunday morning.

Skydiving would be a leap of faith for anyone, but imagine the task being blind.

Juan Garcia was born without sight, so conquering his fears is a daily task.

"I've been wanting to do this for a long time," Garcia said. "So I am ready."

Garcia and his classmates jumped from 10,000 feet Sunday, but they conquer fears and tasks at school every day.

At the state run School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, students learn everything from academics to life skills.

They learn how to cook, clean, and complete tasks that most people take for granted.

Jumping from a plane is just one more task.

"I didn't even mind the ground being there," Garcia said. "Sometimes, the best thing to do to get over your fear is to not think about it. I don't think about it. I just do it."
