TULLAHOMA, TN (WSMV) – A Tennessee man now holds the record for most jumps out of a plane in the state.

Travis Hinton is an army sergeant and, to no surprise, professional skydiver. Hinton is still jumping, trying to break the world record for number of jumps in 24 hours.

Hinton also isn’t just doing it for fun; it’s for a good cause. He is raising money for Sienna Howe, a 20-year-old battling cancer at Vanderbilt.

Hinton needed 52 jumps to break the record. By the end of the day, he jumped 69 times.
