An 87-year-old Ohio man jumped from a plane over the weekend to try to help his ailing great-grandson.

Clarence Turner of Fairfield strapped on a parachute and took the plunge to draw attention to the plight of 10-month-old Julian Couch, who may soon need a lung transplant to survive.

Turner was a paratrooper during the Second World War and two years ago decided to relive the free-fall experience at the age 85.
