Dorothy Custer is 102 and for her birthday, she decided to jump off a bridge (see video)! In a tandem jump, she leaped from a bridge over the Snake River in Idaho. After landing successfully and safely Dorothy said: "It was too short! I don't know why it went down so quickly. But that was all right." Last year Dorothy "flew" across the Snake River Canyon on a zip line.
