What’s it like to sneak into New York City’s World Trade Center at 3 a.m., climb to the top of the new Freedom Tower and jump off? Three men did just that September and recorded the whole thing on video.
The B.A.S.E. jumpers turned themselves into police this week after a lengthy investigation led law enforcement to their homes, where officers found videos and other evidence they were involved in the stunt.
The men say they just strolled into the building and never encountered any security while climbing to the top of the 104-story building, according to The Verge. They say law enforcement should be more focused on the lack of security, rather than their actions. Nonetheless, the men are expected to face trespassing charges.
Stick with the video, it starts slow, but the jump is mesmerizing.
