She said that before she died she wanted either to take a ride in a hot air balloon or to go sky diving.
Most older people never do anything dangerous. They stay at home or in an old people's home, but not this lady!
Corinne Lesile, who lives in Sun City Arizona, is 90 years old and she's a real dare devil. She decided to do something she had always wanted to do.
She said that before she died she wanted either to take a ride in a hot air balloon or to go sky diving. She selected sky diving because she wanted to do something more daring than riding in a hot air balloon.
Her jump was exciting. It was an 8,000-foot-fall to the desert. She used a pink parachute and jumped with an instructor.
She was in The Guinness Book of World Records because she is the oldest sky diver. But she explained she's not really old because she feels young.
