You are watching a video recorded by a helmet camera of a base jumper, on top of the new World Trade Center Tower in New York. The group broke into the tower last September when this video was shot, and climbed the 104-story building - which stands 1,300 feet or almost 400 meters tall at this level - to parachute jump off of it. And watch now how the man with the camera takes the plunge… This week, nearly six months later four men turned themselves in at a police station. They are Marko Markovich, Andrew Rossig, Kyle Hartwell, and James Brady, all in their late twenties to early thirties, arrested on charges of burglary and reckless endangerment, according to police. A lawyer representing one of the jumpers said they characterized themselves as "professional thrill-seekers," and said that everybody would plead not guilty. The men actually posted this video on Youtube and are using it to raise money for charity.
