Watching This Breathtaking Video Is Likely as Close as You’ll Ever Come to BASE Jumping Off NYC’s Freedom Tower

Three BASE jumpers are set to be arraigned in court for leaping from New York City’s Freedom Tower last month. On Monday night, the stunning video footage of the stunt that got them in trouble with the law was released.

“The jumpers’ lawyer said that any money that came in from ads on YouTube would be donated to charity,” The New York Post reports.
