Video: Granny marks birthday with skydive

Watch the amazing granny skydiver

A 90-year-old grandmother from Alabama has celebrated her 90th birthday with a skydive.

Marion Stangler wanted to do the jump for her 80th birthday, but said that something else came up!

After landing safely from the jump, the American granny said "The free fall was the scariest part. I didn't think the parachute would ever open and when it did, I didn't even realise it."

We can't wait to hear what she's got planned for her 100th birthday!
