102-year-old woman may just be the oldest skydiver ever

This badass lady didn't let her age stand in the way of a thrill. 
Irene O'Shea became what seems to be the oldest person to skydive at 102 years old and 194 days. The previous oldest skydiver, according to news reports, was Kenneth Meyer, who landed a jump in 2017 at 102 years and 172 days. 
On Sunday, O'Shea bundled up, boarded a helicopter, and while strapped to her instructor, she jumped out at 14,000 feet — all for a good cause.

Her first was on her 100th birthday in 2016.  Read more...More about Viral Videos, Fundraising, Skydiving, Culture, and Web Culture
