If skydiving is on your bucket list, here's a story that might help you take the leap



Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel. If skydiving is still on your bucket list, here's a story that might help you take the leap. A 104-year-old woman ditched her walker this weekend before skydiving from more than 10,000 feet above northern Illinois. But get this - it wasn't her first time. Dorothy Hoffner first skydived when she was 100 years old. And this most recent attempt may have propelled her into the record books for world's oldest skydiver. Centenarians have all the fun. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
