93-year-old Englishman fulfills deathbed promise to late wife
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A 93-year-old Englishman fulfilled a wish he made to his wife on her deathbed.
Jack Hake's wife Victoria died of a nerve disease a few months ago.
Jack told her he would raise money so her doctors and nurses could get new equipment.
The triple-bypass survivor thought a skydive from 10,000 feet would be the best way to fundraise.
He made the jump with his wife's ashes.
Diving in tandem with his instructor, Jack made a perfect landing, and raised over $1,000 for charity.
"I don't know what the fuss is," he said about the jump. "I would do it again tomorrow."
Next, he is planning a skywalk, strapping himself to the top of a propeller plane.
