89 Year Old Woman Bungee Jumps at the Fair

Fresno, CA 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.
