105-year-old breaks Guinness record as oldest tandem paraglider


A 105-year-old Chinese man proved that it’s never too late to break a Guinness World Record – becoming the oldest person to paraglide in tandem.

Yu Te-Hsin — who was born during World War I – took to the sky around Humtou Mountain in Puli despite undergoing back surgery recently, according to Newsflare.

The adventurous centenarian reached an altitude of about 2,500 feet.

With the masked pilot seated behind him, Yu also took a selfie of his exciting achievement.

“I broke a Guinness World Record. I was very happy,” he said back on terra firma.
