World Trade Center BASE Jumpers Release Video Of Leap Off Tower

Three three base jumpers who were arrested on Monday for parachuting off the 1 World Trade Center tower last fall have released video of the daring jump.

The video provides a first person look at the BASE jumpers' experience off the Freedom Tower at the World Trade Center.

The incident raised questions about security on the building and didn't impress the NYPD and the Port Authority police, who devote millions of dollars to security at the site.

"These men violated the law and placed themselves, as well as others, in danger," Police Commissioner William Bratton said of the thrill-seekers. "These arrests should send a message to anyone thinking about misusing a landmark this way."

"They will be tracked down and they will face serious charges. Being a thrill-seeker does not give immunity from the law."
