Rockford (WIFR) -- For anyone who has ever turned down the thought of skydiving, you may want to reconsider after this.

Dorothy Morris, who is 91-years-old, took to the sky this afternoon at the Chicagoland Skydiving Center in Rochelle. About 50 family and friends were on hand to witness Grandma Morris skydive for the very first time. The Mount Morris resident was the first one on the plane, which would take her to a height of 14-thousand feet. That's where she made the daring jump, which would lead to a safe landing.

After a successful jump, Dorothy says it's something she will probably do again.
