An 80-year-old woman who said she's wanted to skydive "for years" barely made it to the ground alive after she slipped out of her harness, with only her instructor's grip on her clothes stopping a 13,000-foot plummet.

The woman, only known as "Lavern" appears calm and collected in an online video as she waits to jump out of a plane, telling the man behind the camera this is how she wants to celebrate her 80th birthday.

But at the last minute, she panics and clings to the aircraft's door as her tandem instructor pushes them both out into the sky.

Then, she slips from her harness, and plummets the rest of the way bent almost in half, her shirt and jacket hauled up and her skin literally flapping in the wind.

The video indicates the jump took pace at the Parachute Centre in Acampo, Calif.
