81 year old jumps Auckland bungee

An 81-year-old woman has jumped the Auckland bungee jump twice.

People on flights to Auckland concerned about doing the city's famous bungee jump could take courage from the story of one octogenarian.

Wilmina van Hoof has taken on the jump despite being 81 years old and enjoyed it so much that she did it twice, reported.

Mrs van Hoof was excited and told the newspaper she loved the experience, something that was overheard by an anonymous donor who paid for her to do it again.

"I felt like I was flying like an eagle, it was everything I imagined and more," she said.

However, her daughter Tia O'Reilly was not so sure, who said she was a "wreck" during the jump but thought her mum was an "inspiration".
