The Big Fresno Fair featured a big event today as an 89-year-old woman took an amazing plunge. This is Frances Gade's fifth time to bungee jump at the fair.

Her family cheered her on as she was lifted more than a hundred feet off the ground.

Frances said she became something of a daredevil after surviving colon cancer.

Frances Gade said: "All my friends at church and all my friends prayed for me and so, I said how come I'm just sitting around here doing nothing I wanted to do something and I saw them bungee jumping so I said I got to do that!."

The company that runs the bungee jump says Frances is the oldest person who has ever taken the leap.
