An 81-year old woman was featured on "Today" with Matt Lauer on Tuesday after video of her skydiving misadventure at the Lodi Parachute Center went viral.
Laverne Everett of Oakdale went skydiving at the Lodi jump center to celebrate her 80th birthday on May 21, 2011. Her cousin recently posted video of the tandem jump, which did not go as expected.
