Kentucky man breaks skydiving record to help a friend

A Kentucky man recently broke the state skydiving record--for good cause.

It took organized teams of parachute riggers to meticulously piece together all the packs, just to keep Troy Woods airborne. He did 65 jumps in a single day--a full 15 more than the record, which puts him at 500 jumps for all time.

All of this was to raise as much money as possible for his friend's family. The event, called "Jumping for Jesse has raised a fair sum of money; if you wish to donate you can do so at any BB&T bank. Just ask them about Jesse's Journey.
