A great-grandmother in Pennsylvania celebrated her 94th birthday by crossing skydiving off of her bucket list.

Eila Campbell of Williamsport decided to take the 10,000-foot plunge because she might not "make it for another year."

"Better do it now," she said.

Campbell was joined by her granddaughter, Sara Schuelke, and great-granddaughter Jess Fox for the dive over Hazleton.

"This was her bucket list and there was no way I was missing the most incredible matriarch jumping for one of the greatest families," Schuelke said. "I wasn't going to miss it."

Campbell was thrilled by the experience and said said it won't be her last time skydiving.

"The free fall is kind of a 'wow.' The wind is so terrific. It was great and I loved it. I'll do it again," she said.

Don Keller owner of Above the Poconos Skydiving said he's never seen someone Campbell's age skydive before.
