101-year-old D-Day veteran becomes world’s oldest skydiver
Verdun Hayes, a great-grandfather, jumped out of a plane from 15-thousand feet in Devon, U.K., on Sunday as four generations of his family looked on.
Hayes tried skydiving for the first time last year to celebrate his 100th birthday.
Hayes, who is 101 years old and 38 days, broke the record of a Canadian who skydived in June 2013 aged 101 and three days.
