VIDEO: 'A special experience'

A South African great-grandmother is bent on proving you’re never too old to learn new tricks.

Two days after celebrating her 100th birthday by sky diving, Georgina Harwood went on a shark dive.

"I'm so glad I did it, a special experience in my lifetime. I just can't compare it to anything else," she told The Telegraph newspaper.

Harwood went sky diving to raise funds for life jackets for the National Sea Rescue Institute, a non-profit tasked with saving lives on South African waters.

The Telegraph also did a video report when Harwood jumped out of a plane and plummeted to earth at 125 mph in tandem with instructor Jason Baker.
