Woman Free-Falls Over Everest

A British woman has become the first woman ever to skydive over Mount Everest.

Holly Budge jumped out of a plane at 29,000 feet.

She had to wear an oxygen mask because the air up there is so thin.

And she landed in one piece.

"It was an amazing view," Budge understated to Early Show co-anchor Maggie Rodriguez Wednesday.

She's done 2,500 skydives -- and this one cost her $24,000.

"It was worth every single penny!" she exclaimed. "It was such an amazing feeling and experience."

As Budge spoke to Rodriguez, video of the jump was shown:
