Man Skydives In N.J. On His 100th Birthday

WILLIAMSTOWN, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — An elderly man celebrated his 100th birthday by jumping out of a plane in New Jersey.

Fred Mack made his first skydiving jump when he was just 95-years-old. At the time, he vowed he would repeat the jump, if he managed to live to the century mark.

“I was putting it off for five years, but I lived anyway,” Mack said.

On Sunday, the Newtown Square, Pennsylvania man made good on his promise, taking a dive at Free Fall Adventures in Williamstown.

Once he was back on the ground, Mack joined his friends and family at nearby hotel for a more traditional birthday party.

We haven’t heard if he made any promises regarding any future celebrations.
