102-Year-Old Woman BASE Jumps in Idaho

Dorothy Custer, a 102-year-old thrill-seeker, did a tandem BASE-jump with instructor Sean Chuma this past June in Twin Falls, Idaho.

Custer's grandson organized a zip line adventure over the Snake River Canyon for her 101st birthday. Eager to find a new adventure for grandma, her grandson approached Chuma to see if he would be willing to provide the tandem jump. After Chuma assessed her as fit for flight, it was over the bridge and into the record books!

Custer's next goal? A leisurely flight in a hot air balloon!
