A 101-year-old man who courageously fought in the largest naval, air and land operation in world history — D-Day — recently broke a world skydiving record.
Bryson William Verdun Hayes, a British military veteran, jumped out of a plane at 15,000 feet on Sunday in England with four generations of his family and became the oldest tandem jumper to ever do it.
“Hopefully I will be doing this when I’m 102 or 103. Just depends on the luck of the draw really,” he told WDRB News.
For the record, Hayes broke a Canadian man’s mark, who was 101 years and three days old when he jumped. The Englishman was 101 years and 38 days.
“I couldn’t feel better in my life,” Hayes said, right before they took off to make history.
