98-year-old man skydives for charity


If there was a saying you're never too old to skydive, that saying would be about one Florida man, 98-year-old Don Sugg.

On Saturday, Sugg spent the day jumping out of an airplane and it was all for charity.

The event raised money for the homeless. But, it wasn't his first time skydiving. Sugg says he started skydiving at age 80, saying it keeps him young.

"I've gone from one to three times a year since then, for different occasions, it doesn't make any difference what occasion, for some charity," Sugg says.

That fits into Sugg's motto for long life, which is simply "think positive."

He said doing something for others is a way to keep him from getting old.
