World Trade Center BASE jump Making Waves
Wow! Officials seem to be jealous of the attention.
Check it out:
Three people accused of parachuting off the top of 1 World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan this past September turned themselves in Monday along with an earthbound accomplice to face charges, including felony burglary, misdemeanor reckless endangerment, misdemeanor jumping from a structure
The case is the second in two weeks arising from surreptitious stunts from the structure. A teenage boy was arrested on March 16 after authorities said he slipped through a gap in a fence, eluded an inattentive security guard and spent about two hours atop the 1,776-foot-tall tower.
The incidents have raised questions about security at the lower Manhattan site, which is supposed to be one of the most tightly protected in the country. The site is owned by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
The NYPD said last fall that investigators were looking for two parachutists in dark jumpsuits seen floating near the building around 3 a.m. on Sept. 30, landing by the nearby Goldman Sachs skyscraper and walking away.
