TVNZ news reporter Kristin Hall overcame her fear of heights today and did a 19,000ft Kea jump to help raise awareness of the plight of the Kea. The tandem skydive was Kristin's first and she'd thought she'd never do something like this, but as it was for her work she felt she had to step up and take the challenge.
Kristin says she was surprised how amazing it was and would actually consider doing it again.
The news item will broadcast on TVNZ news programme Seven Sharp later this week.
