Shayna Jacobs, Rocco Parascandola and Tina Moore of the New York Daily News report that Andrew Rossig, James Brady, Kyle Hartwell and Marco Markovich will be charged with burglary and possibly other crimes for sneaking past security measures and jumping off the roof of the 105-floor tower in the early morning of September 30, 2013. The roof level is 1,368 feet high.

According to the report, three of the men jumped while Hartwell acted as a lookout on the ground. The jumpers documented their feat with GoPro cameras and, after a successful jump, posted the footage to YouTube.
