Min Deyu, 81, who hails from Hubei in China, had recently gone to visit her son in Australia. There she tried skydiving and completely “fell in love” with the sport.
At that age, most people try to avoid even getting into a plane; but this grandmother couldn’t wait to jump off it. During her stint with skydiving, she jumped from an aircraft 12,000 feet above the ground.
She was calm during the 60-second dive and was thoroughly enjoying it as she gave a thumbs up to her fans on the ground.
Chinese media reported that she “went gaga for parachuting”.
