HAZLETON, Pa. (AP) — A woman from Williamsport celebrated her 94th birthday in a very unique way. Eila Campbell decided to go skydiving with her granddaughter and great-granddaughter.
She says she figured she might not “make it for another year” at her age, so she took the 10,000-foot plunge on Sunday at the Hazleton Regional Airport.
Granddaughter Sara Schuelke and great-granddaughter Jess Fox also jumped. Each woman jumped separately but in tandem with an instructor.
Campbell described the free fall as “kind of a wow” and says she’d skydive again. The owner of Above the Poconos Skydivers says he’s never seen anyone as old as Campbell jump.
