A 100-year-old great-grandmother has celebrated her birthday by undertaking a sky dive in Cape Town, South Africa.
Georgina Harwood, pictured above and dressed in a red jumpsuit, performed a tandem jump which saw her plummet to earth at 125mph with instructor Jason Baker. She was watched by friends and family who flew in from Australia and England to celebrate the milestone birthday with her and
handed her a glass of pink champagne on landing.
The sky dive is Mrs Harwood’s third since turning 92 in 2007.
“I was much more conscious of everything this time because I had a better idea what I was going to do,” she said of the experience.
“It was wonderful, exhilarating, and special. I’m trying to think of the adjectives I can add to it.”
On Monday, she intends to continue her daredevil celebrations with a cage dive among Great White Sharks in the icy South Atlantic Sea.
Her motto, she said, is:
“Do it now! Whether it’s comfortable or uncomfortable, good or bad, relaxing or challenging – don’t delay.”
