104-year-old woman skydives to create world record

104-year-old woman skydives to create world record

The notion that age is merely a number is exemplified by numerous elderly individuals, and Dorothy Hoffner is a shining example of this truth.

The 104-year-old from Chicago boldly endeavoured to set a skydiving world record for herself on Sunday.

A video capturing her incredible achievement was shared online by Skydive Chicago, the agency that helped Dorothy accomplish the feat, leaving viewers in awe.

“Creating and celebrating Dorothy on her attempt of setting the world record as the oldest person to make a skydive!” they wrote.

The video begins by showing Dorothy descending from the sky, along with her instructor, on a parachute. Once she lands, the onlookers start cheering.

“Age is just a number,” she told the cheering crowd after touching the ground.

The video ends with a person asking Dorothy how she is feeling, to which she replies, “Wonderful. But it was wonderful up there. The whole thing was delightful, wonderful, couldn’t have been better.”

What truly stands out in the video is the radiant smile that graces the centenarian's face.

The video, which was shared a day ago, has accumulated nearly 35,000 views and comments from the people.

“This is so awesome. Congratulations,” posted a Facebook user. “So cool! Way to go diver, that landing was perfection!” added another.

“Awesome job Dorothy! We were rooting for you from Ohio!” commented a third.

“I love this so much! How incredible! Thanks skydive Chicago for taking great care of this sweet lady,” wrote a fourth.

Guinness World Records is yet to confirm if Dorothy created a record with this jump. Presently, Rut Linnéa Ingegärd Larsson from Sweden holds the title of ‘Oldest tandem parachute jump (female).’ She achieved the record a year ago, in 2022, at the age of 103 years and 259 days.
