Taking A Flying Leap Off the World Trade Center

Helmet-cam footage taken by one of 3 adrenaline junkies of parachute jumps from the top of the World Trade Center in the wee hours of the morning on September 30, 2013 emerged when the 3 guys turned themselves into the police recently.  This was all quite illegal of course.  This is the most dramatic of a series of security breaches recently come to light at the WTC.  The other was a 15 year old boy from New Jersey who crawled under a hole in the fence and climbed to the top of the tower before security discovered that he was even there.

Pretty amazing, but still not the same as Philippe Petit's tightrope walk between the Twin Towers in 1974.

Hold onto your acrophobia, because here is your vicarious experience of jumping from the top of the World Trade Center.  Some people just ain't got no sense.
