CALVERTON - A Quogue grandmother jumped out of an airplane today in the name of charity.

Rochelle King celebrated her 77th birthday by jumping out of a plane at Skydive Long Island in Calverton.

Rather than showering the mother of three and grandmother of five with gifts, King asked friends and family to donate to Medical Mission International.

The charity builds health facilities and provides modernization in different hospitals in El Salvador.

King says she had such a great time that she's planning a charity dive next year on her 78th birthday.
