Jumpers Arrested for Leaping Off Freedom Tower
Posted March 25th, 2014 @ 9:08am

Four New York men were arrested yesterday (Monday) after a five-month investigation into a BASE jumping stunt they pulled at One World Trade Center.

In the early morning hours of September 30th, the men somehow got to the top of the 105-story Freedom Tower, attached cameras to their helmets and parachuted down to the street. Video of the jump was posted to YouTube yesterday after their arrest. The thrill-seekers have been charged with third-degree burglary, second-degree reckless endangerment, and jumping from a structure. (Newsday)
