VIDEO: BASE Jumpers Leap From 1WTC

Four BASE jumpers turned themselves in to the NYPD yesterday after having parachuted from the top of 1WTC in September. This is the second report of major 1WTC security lapses this week and the tabloids are, correctly this time, going nuts.
Police told the Daily News that former WTC ironworker James Brady, 32, Andrew Rossig, 33, Marco Markovich, 27, and lookout Kyle Hartwell, 29, were charged with burglary, reckless endangerment and jumping from a structure before being released on $3,500 bail. Rossig told the Daily News that the skydivers accessed Ground Zero by slipping through a hole in the fence and then "just kind of walked in." The New Jersey teen similarly made his way into the tower without encountering much security. If the helmet camera footage Brady filmed pulls in any money, Rossig's attorney told the newspaper, the skydivers plan to donate the proceeds to a charity for families of 9/11 victims.
