Daredevils Turn Themselves In For Base Jumping Off World Trade Center
Many are questioning the security at the One World Trade Center after a video showing men base jumping off the tower made it’s way on to YouTube. Four men have been arrested and charged with felony burglary, misdemeanor jumping from a structure and misdemeanor reckless endangerment.
James Brady, 32; Andrew Rossig, 33; Marko Markovich, 27; and Kyle Hartwell, 29 all made their $3,500 bail, plead not guilty and have been released but could possibly face up to seven years for their actions.
Creeping in from a gap in the fence, three of the men made their way to the top of the nation’s tallest building and jumped. As they plummeted from the 1,776-foot-tall building, one of the jumpers captured the amazing view with his helmet cam.

The men never wanted to go public with the video they filmed back on September 30th but once police showed up with warrants, they decided to turn themselves in and post the video.
According to ABC News, Brady used to be a construction worker at the site so he found an area where surveillance cameras weren’t closely monitoring the area and planned the stunt from there. The surveillance footage police did end up finding, lead them to the three base jumpers and their lookout driver.
With the building still not being open, many are afraid about how secure the One World Trade Center will be when it opens in May. Unfortunately the men are facing some serious charges but did live their dream! Would you take this big of a risk, if you got to accomplish your dream?
