Williamsport resident Eila Campbell says she figured she might not "make it for another year" at her age, so she took the 10,000-foot plunge on Sunday at Hazleton Regional Airport.

Granddaughter Sara Schuelke and great-granddaughter Jess Fox also jumped. Each woman jumped separately but in tandem with an instructor.

Campbell described the free fall as "kind of a wow" and says she'd skydive again.

The owner of Above the Poconos Skydivers says he's never seen anyone as old as Campbell jump.
