102-year-old celebrates birthday by base jumping

Report & Video by Ashley Fudge

102-year-old base jumper Dorothy Custer has celebrated her birthday by leaping from a bridge in Idaho over the Snake River in a

tandem jump.

The plucky pensioner relished the flying leap and as she landed exclaimed: "It was too short! I don't know why it went down so

quickly. But that was all right."

The centenarian is no stranger to extreme sports. Last year she ziplined across the Snake River Canyon.
