MiamiHerald / Shmuel Eisenmann sat in the plane waiting for his turn to jump when “the magnitude” of what he was about to do hit him.

“As soon as the plane turned on, I was like, ‘I am sitting next to my grandma and we are about to jump out of the plane,” he said.

As they climbed into the sky, he said he gave his 85-year-old grandmother, Henriette Siebenberg, who as a child survived the Holocaust, high-fives and kisses.

“She’s always been the cool grandmother,” said Shmuel, who lives with his family in Miami Beach. “She’s amazing.”
