A 102-year-old Idaho woman celebrated her birthday in unusual fashion – by base jumping off a nearly 600-foot high bridge. Dorothy Custer, who celebrated her 101st by zip-lining Idaho’s Snake River Canyon, marked her latest landmark by leaping off the Perrine Bridge in Twin Falls. She jumped with professional BASE jumper Sean Chuman who said she had been – by far – his oldest client. Mrs. Custer said she had originally planned a “quiet” birthday celebration but her family had encouraged her to celebrate in style.
When asked about the key to her longevity, she replied: “I just went on living and having a good time and doing what was necessary. I don’t think of age right now.” (KMTV News)
