A group of daredevils is arrested after a stunt in which three of the members jumped off the top of One World Trade Center. They could face up to seven years in prison if convicted.
James Brady, Andrew Rossig, and Marco Markovich filmed the BASE jump (Warning: Graphic Language) in September of last year. Late one night the three men gained access to New York's Freedom Tower through a hole in a fence on the site. Brady, who worked in construction on the 104-story skyscraper, knew of a blind spot in the site's surveillance camera. After entering the building, the men took the stairs to the roof of the tower, said a prayer, and then jumped 1,776 feet down.
"It was one of the first things my client said to me ... how surprised he was at how there was no security whatsoever," Rossig's attorney, Tim Parlatore, told the media, "how easy it was to walk right up there."
