Woman marks 94th birthday by skydiving

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

HAZLETON, Pa. -- A woman celebrated her 94th birthday by going skydiving along with her granddaughter and great-granddaughter. Williamsport resident Eila Campbell said she figured she might not "make it for another year" at her age, so she took the 10,000-foot plunge Sunday at Hazleton Regional Airport. Granddaughter Sara Schuelke and great-granddaughter Jess Fox also jumped. Campbell described the free fall as "kind of a wow" and said she'd skydive again.
