Where's Shirley?

Yet another reason why I have no desire to skydive...

An elderly woman named Laverne says she is fulfilling a decade-long dream of skydiving at the start of a souvenir video recorded at the Parachute Center in Northern California. 

But the dream devolves into a living nightmare in a hurry as the 80-year-old is pushed out of the plane by her tandem master with a loose harness that quickly comes undone, leaving the poor woman dangling thousands of feet above ground.

That instructor really did push her out of the plane when it was obvious that she was terrified.

I'll just watch from the bar on the ground, thank you very much.
