Lucy Hayes, an 8 year old from Cambridgeshire, has become the youngest female from Britain to skydive after jumping 9,000 ft over Lake Bled in Slovenia.
In a leap of faith, Lucy and her brother Tom, aged just 7, skydived with their father, an expeirienced jumper. Children under 16 are not allowed to skydive in Britain and their friends at school were amazed after they told them they had jumped out of a plane. Her friends thought she was very brave but Lucy said, “It was absolutely amazing. I loved every minute of it.”
