World Trade Center Secret BASE Jumpers Confess

//

Four men who BASE jumped from One World Trade Center in New York City last Sept. 30 turned themselves in on Monday as law enforcement closed in on them, according to news reports. Police had been searching for the jumpers for about five months with only nighttime surveillance footage to go on.

The men, James Brady (32), Andrew Rossig (33), Marko Markovich (27) and Kyle Hartwell (29), sneaked onto the grounds of Freedom Tower through a hole in the fence and then climbed the 1,776-foot-tall building, the tallest in the Western Hemisphere. Then they jumped off, carrying nothing but parachutes and, one of them, a helmet camera. Watch the jump below:

The men pleaded not guilty, according to CNN. If convicted of the charges, which encompass burglary, reckless endangerment and jumping from a structure, they could spend up to seven years in prison.

Freedom Tower stands on the same ground where the original World Trade Center's twin towers were destroyed by a terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2001.
