A Michigan man marked his 70th birthday by jumping out of plane. But, he didn't do it just once. To celebrate his big day, Larry Ekstrom jumped 70 times.

Ekstrom's been skydiving for 46 years. Ten years ago he rang in his 60th by skydiving, you guessed it, 60 times. He said he plans to continue the trend and push himself for as long as possible.

To top it off, Ekstrom jumped for a good cause. He raised money for a charity that provides trained dogs for the blind.
