Williamsport resident Eila Campbell says she figured that at her age she might not "make it for another year," 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 said he's never seen a jump by anyone as old as Campbell.
