Video: Man base jumps inside Sheraton Hotel in downtown Birmingham

A video of a guy base jumping from the 12th floor of the Sheraton Birmingham Hotel has made its way to YouTube.

The video, which was posted on January 2, shows a daring, unidentified man leaping from the top floor inside the hotel, deploying a parachute and safely landing on the ground seconds later. The jumper then quickly gathered his parachute and headed for the exit.

People who are caught illegally base jumping often face criminal charges such as reckless endangerment and trespassing. For now, it appears this adrenaline junkie has escaped the long arm of the law.
