Grand­mother’s jump for joy

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

A US woman can check some­thing off her bucket list: she cel­e­brated her 87th birth­day by sky­div­ing. Ja­nis Le­febre’s chil­dren bought her the sky­div­ing pack­age from Jump­town, a sky­div­ing cen­tre based in Or­ange, Mas­sachusetts af­ter learn­ing that jump­ing out of a plane was some­thing she al­ways wanted to do. A crowd of fam­ily and friends gath­ered to cheer on Le­febre’s de­scent from 13,500ft. Le­febre says her first try was “per­fect”. She added that sky­div­ing lived up to her ex­pec­ta­tions and she wouldn’t hes­i­tate to do it again.
