A 92-year-old New Hampshire woman has celebrated her birthday by sky-diving from a plane. Jane Bockstruck tells The Keene Sentinel that she doesn't know what overcame her when she decided to take the parachute jump. She says she doesn't remember jumping from the plane.
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
The first President Bush completed a parachute jump on his 85th birthday last summer, but he'll have to keep going to catch up with Jane Bockstruck. She went skydiving on her 92nd birthday. The plane was at 13,000 feet when she tumbled out the door.
Her jump instructor says she had perfect form. Now that it's over, Bockstruck tells The Sentinel newspaper in Keene, New Hampshire that she does not remember jumping.
