Determined Military Vet Aged 95 Dives Off Board Into Pool On July 4th

This is the heart-warming moment a determined 95-year-old military veteran achieves his goal of launching himself off a diving board into a swimming pool. Fun-loving Daniel Biss, a WWII and Korean War veteran, was at a picnic celebrating Independence Day on July 4 when one of the children got nervous about jumping off the diving board. As the adults in attendance tried to convince the boy it was fun, Daniel soon stepped up to show him there was nothing to worry about. After being helped onto the board by family and friends, he shuffles forward dramatically teetering on the edge before finally leaping forward into the pool to a chorus of loud cheers. Daughter Christine Ross captured the inspiring moment on camera in Ohio, USA, on July 4.
