94-year-old goes skydiving for her birthday

A Pennsylvania woman has celebrated her 94th birthday by going skydiving along with her granddaughter and great-granddaughter.

Williamsport resident Eila Campbell says she figured she might not "make it for another year" at her age, so she took the 10,000-foot plunge on Sunday at Hazleton Regional Airport.

Each woman jumped separately but in tandem with an instructor. 

Campbell described the free fall as "kind of a wow" and says she'd skydive again.
