Poland's oldest parachutist jumps at 84

Krystyna ZbyszynskaKrystyna Zbyszynska, 84, became Poland's oldest parachutist when she made her first jump with her daughter-in-law.

"I survived World War Two and wasn't afraid, so what's there to be afraid of now?" she said after clambering out of her jumpsuit this weekend.

"Babcia (granny) Krysia is not your ordinary gran," explained one of her teenaged granddaughters.

"She tells me I'm not playing my music loud enough and comes into my room and wants to dance."

Asked whether she planned another jump Zbyszynska, from the northern city of Olsztyn, told the channel: "Yes, the day I turn 100."
