Woman, 102, breaks skydiving record

Staff writer

A great-grandmother from Australia is thought to have become the world's oldest skydiver after leaping out of an aircraft at 14,000ft.

Most people would be winding things down a little at the ripe old age of 102, but Irene O'Shea decided to jump into the record books instead with the 140mph feat of daring.

And it's not her first leap either. She took up the hobby at the relatively young age of 100, in 2016!
