Chicago: A 104-year-old woman has set a world record in skydiving by taking a jump from a plane that was 10,000 feet off the ground, becoming the oldest woman to engage in skydiving globally.
These days, the interest in skydiving among young people is on the rise, with one reason being the trend of celebrities sharing their skydiving videos on social media. However, just recently, a 104-year-old elderly woman accomplished a remarkable feat by jumping from a plane. What makes this interesting is that this was not Dorothy Hoffner’s first skydiving experience; instead, she embarked on skydiving for the first time at the age of 100.
According to international media reports, the woman’s name is Dorothy Hoffner, and she is a resident of the American city of Chicago. Her skydiving adventure also took place in Chicago. Dorothy set this world record on a Sunday, and she couldn’t be happier.
Dorothy Hoffner’s family and friends gathered at Chicago Airport to celebrate her achievement and to make her feel special. Instructors praised her, saying that Dorothy knew what and how to do things, which made their job much easier.
It’s worth noting that prior to this, the record was held by a Sudanese woman who achieved it at the age of 103 last year.
