Ida Shannon celebrated her 91st birthday by jumping out of a plane.

MINNESOTA -- One woman from Minnesota is proving that age is just a number.

Ida Shannon celebrated her 91st birthday by jumping out of a plane.

She says when she told her church she wanted to skydive on her birthday they helped raise money for the "experience of a lifetime."

"Life would be pretty dull if you didn't embrace adventures," Shannon said. "I like taking risks I think I was born that way."

Shannon has always been a bit of a thrill seeker. She went ziplining for her 80th birthday.
