Suspected Freedom Tower B.A.S.E-jumpers charged


(WTNH) –   A lot of people talking this morning about another security breach at what’s supposed to be one of the most secure sites in the United State.   In New York City Monday, three daredevils accused of B.A.S.E.-jumping off the Freedom Tower turned themselves in to authorities.

Police say it actually happened months ago, around 3:00 am on September 30. But the dramatic video of the jumps didn’t appear on YouTube until last night.

Defense attorneys say the men are experienced base jumpers who planned the stunt for the middle of the night to minimize danger to anyone on the street.

None of them are denying they did it.
