Skydiving is challenging yet fun outdoor activity. Tandem Skydiving, on other other hand, is when two people jump together where in the instructor wears a parachute and a student wears a safety harness to connect to the instructor.

First time skydivers usually do tandem skydiving so they will be guided and trained the proper way to exit the aircraft, do free fall maneuvers and canopy deployment.

Many people add skydiving in their bucket list as one special goal like an old woman named Laverne.

Laverne, 80 years old tried sky diving when she slipped out of her safety harness and became a terrifying experience for her and her instructor.

She has been dreaming to do this for ten years but decided to finally give it a try and face her fears. In the video, she seems very excited at first but when she and her instructor is about to jump from the aircraft; Laverne hesitated and was holding tightly to the aircraft.

Her hesitation and struggle are the reasons why they didn’t had a smooth jump. A British parachute expert said that the problem started because they left the aircraft in a wrong position.

Unfortunately, after they have jumped from the small plane, she slipped out of her safety harness and almost falls down. They safely landed on the ground because her instructor was able to hold on her tightly while pulling her up, but it’s a very terrifying experience for the both of them.
