90-year-old Missouri woman goes skydiving

June 25, 2012 (CHICAGO)

This past weekend, Rosebud Gard, 90, got do to something she'd always dreamed off. She got into a plane near Kansas City and took a leap from 14,000 feet for a tandem sky dive.

After a minute of free fall, then several more minutes with the chute open, she glided safely back to earth.

Rosebud says for the past 20 years, she's been crossing things off her bucket list.

"I wanted to go on a hot air balloon. I got to do that on my 70th birthday. I wanted to go on a cruise. I wanted to parasail. I did that in 1995," she said.

While skydiving was the last item on her list, the 90-year-olds says she is still looking for other adventures to try.
