Celebrating 70 Years by Skydiving!

Twin Falls

No one is ever too old to try something new. One Magic Valley woman proved that today.

Jeanne Meyer recently turned 70 years old. She had always wanted to go skydiving but never got around to it. She decided she wasn't getting any younger and went for it.

She said, "I've turned 70 and I just want all the other people out there to know that its ok to go up there in age, its fine."

Snake River Skydiving helped Jeanne achieve her goal. They strapped her in, gave her a lesion in jumping out of a plane, and took her up to about 10,000 feet. With help from her expert sky diver, Jeanne made a perfect landing.

Jeanne said she wasn't nervous, but said her children knew what she was going to do and told her not to. Her grandkids liked the idea. Her husband, however, didn't know she was doing this today. So this is probably the first he’s heard about it.
