When the organizers of the activity asked him why he wanted to parachute, Elia Campbell did not hesitate: "Because I am crazy". But the truth is that this old woman from Pennsylvania (USA) did not want to miss the opportunity to live an experience like this. "I had to do this year," Campbell said aware that, over nine decades of life, this could be his last chance.
This is how he decided to celebrate his 94 birthday with a jump that many teenagers would not dare. It was launched from 3,048 meters and the cameras recorded the fall to keep the memory. His family waited downstairs (although some also encouraged to get on the plane and launch) and, after a little orthodox landing, said he would repeat. The nonagenarian has it clear: everyone should try it.
