Video of the Day June 5, 2013
102 Year Old Woman Base Jumps Off A Bridge

The woman in this video, Dorothy Custer, just celebrated her 102nd birthday by base jumping off a bridge in Idaho.

The tandem jump, which you can watch above, was a present from her family.

And believe it or not, it wasn't the first extreme sport she's tried - for her 101st birthday, she went on a zip line for the first time.

"I've never thought of age," Dorothy told the local CBS News affiliate. "I just went on living and having a good time."

When asked why she decided to base jump, Dorothy said "I guess because I don't know any better."

When the jump was over, she was asked how it was. "Too short," Dorothy said. Here's a report from CBS.
