An anonymous base-jumper was filmed over the weekend Jumping from La Collette flats in Jersey, video of the dangerous stunt has been shared on social media.
BASE jumps are often made from tall buildings and antenna towers.
Many such BASE jumps must be covert because the owners of these objects are generally reluctant to allow their object to be used as a platform. While BASE jumping itself is generally not illegal, the covert nature of accessing objects usually necessitates trespassing on an object. Jumpers who are caught can expect to be charged with trespassing, as well as having charges like breaking and entering, reckless endangerment, vandalism, or other such charges pressed against them. Other people accompanying the jumper, such as ground crew, may also face charges.
