Meet New Zealand’s skydiving 90-year-old

Margaret Hawkins wanted to do something different for her 90th birthday, so she jumped out of a plane strapped to a sky diver.

She certainly blew the candles out in style.  

Ms Hawkins told The Project host Jessie Mulligan she had wanted to try it for a while.

“I said to my physio I was going to try it on my 90th birthday,” she said.

She has good advice to other people approaching old age: “Get out and do something and enjoy it.”

She said the secret to her longevity was eating well, not smoking or drinking alcohol and staying active.
