NEW YORK – Four people were charged Tuesday after police tracked them down for their BASE jump off the new World Trade Center tower in Manhattan.

Police say three of those charged - Andrew Rossig, Macro Markovich and James Brady - jumped from the tower with parachutes in the early hours of September 30, 2013 while a fourth served as a lookout. Video of the stunt, posted to YouTube today and available below, was taken from a helmet camera.

The jumpers claim they evaded one security guard and remained at the top of the new tower for at least four hours.

The four say they plan on donating any money earned on the footage to a charity for the families of 9/11 victims. Their next court date will be in July.
