NYC Freedom Tower BASE Jump

This first-person video footage of two (of three) illicit BASE jumps off the top of New York’s Freedom tower is heart stopping. It took place under the cover of night last September and, thanks to the vicarious wonder of the GoPro camera, follows one of the jumpers from the top of the tower all the way down to the West Side Highway, where he scurries to the bike path to hide his parachute. The action starts at about 2:20 when the first jumper descends.

An article in The Daily News reports that the three jumpers and their lookout will be charged with burglary. Via Digg.
