When a neighborhood child at a pool was too afraid to jump off the diving board, there was one man who knew just what to do to show the kid how to be brave.
Daniel Biss, a 95-year-old WWII and Korean War veteran, was determined to show the child how to dive with a brave face, but Daniel had his own physical hurdles to overcome.
With assistance from family and friends, he carefully climbed up the board with his cane and walked toward the edge of the board before jumping.
Daniel’s daughter, Christine Ross recorded the sweet moment her dad took his big dive.
