VIDEO: 80-year-old slips from harness skydiving

(WTVR) – A video is making the rounds online after a woman survived a harrowing ordeal as she celebrated her 80th birthday.

The video is from last year, but was just posted last Thursday.

Laverne Everett said she wanted to go skydiving for her birthday, but admitted that right before the big jump, her bad knees gave out.

As a result, video posted online shows her instructor giving her a shove that forces Everett to tumble out of the plane — and slip out of her harness!
