Viral Video of the Week: BASE Jumping Off the Freedom Tower

Back on September 30th of 2013, four men from the state of New York entered the Freedom Tower around 3 a.m. and parachuted from the top of the building down into the sleepy city below. And while we’ve featured crazy action footage from GoPro cameras before, this just might be the best one yet.

Now, I don’t understand why people do this, but I’m glad they do because it’s the closest I will ever get to knowing what this it’s like to BASE jump. It looks like it’s really, really awesome/terrifying. Unfortunately for these four, the jump location was also really, really illegal. Due to that, they’ve all been charged with a felony and two misdemeanors.
