There are brave people, then there is Elvin Howell. Howell, a 103 year old Lubbock Resident, decided to go ziplining today at Palo Duro Canyon.

He joined a group of other senior citizens in taking the line through the canyon. Howell, who lives at Lubbock's Carillon, says he takes no medicine and still walks without a cane. He also appears to be afraid of nothing.

We'll have more with Elvin coming up tonight on NewsChannel 11 at 10.
