CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago Police are searching for three people who managed to
leap from the top of North Americaís second-tallest building overnight,
using parachutes to float to the ground.
Police spokesman Ron Gaines says authorities began receiving 911 calls
around 12:30 a.m. on Thursday from people who saw the trio of BASE jumpers
leap from the top of Trump International Hotel & Tower, a 1,389-foot
building along the Chicago River in the cityís downtown.
No injuries were reported and the three daredevils managed to get away.
Gaines says investigators arenít sure how the jumpers got access to the top
of the building, but says if the three are arrested, they could face
trespassing charges, along with other possible counts.
Hotel officials declined to comment when reached Thursday morning.
