Maxine Lewis is celebrating her 80th birthday in an extreme way. She's jumping out of a plane at the Quincy Airport.
The day of skydiving became a family outing. Her three sons and four grandchildren are also taking the plunge making it a three generational jump.
Lewis said this birthday present is a chance for her to live life on the wild side.
"I led a very sheltered life since I was growing up, my mother was so afraid I'd get hurt, I couldn't even own a bicycle, so I thought, hey, if I am gonna get some exciting things in my life, I don't have too many more years to get it done," said Maxine Lewis, celebrating her 80th birthday.
Lewis said she won't take another dive out of a plane but next on her list is white water rafting.
