Fascinating video showcasing what it is like to base jump from the 1 World Trade Center, a 105-floor tower that reaches a height of 541 metres (1,776 feet). As the article in the New York Daily News explains, however, unless you want to be confused for a terrorist and be criminally charged, definitely not something you'd normally want to try.
It was a Geroni-no-no.
Authorities are poised to charge four daredevils in a dangerous, predawn skydive from 1 World Trade Center six months ago, a source told the Daily News.
Word of the charges came on the heels of a major security breach at 1 World Trade Center last week when a New Jersey teen crawled through a hole in a fence and managed to reach the roof of the tower, 1,368 feet above street level.
