(WIAT) — Most people choose to celebrate their birthday in a traditional way. Many people celebrate their birthdays with the company of family and friends and an abundance of cake.

Marion Stangler decided to celebrate her 90th birthday in a different way.

Stangler, a Pensacola resident, celebrated her birthday by skydiving.

She took to the skies, with help of course, and plunged 14,000 feet.

Her friends and two of her sons were on hand to cheer her on.

Stangler is now the oldest person to ever jump at Emerald Coast Skydiving.
