Some guy base jumped off a crane in Downtown Tampa!

I don't know how I missed this until today, but some crazy person base jumped off a construction crane in Downtown Tampa on New Year's Eve!

For the record, no, that's not legal.

Base jumping is sort of like skydiving, but instead of jumping out of a plane, you jump off a tall structure and parachute down.

On New Year's Eve, an unknown person shimmied up to the top of a construction crane (there are SEVERAL to choose from Downtown at the moment!), and parachuted down in the thick fog. I'm guessing everything went fine...I have no idea who the guy or gal is. And I'm assuming the mystery jumper is experienced, because they clearly came prepared with their own equipment.

I am not able to embed the video (stupid internet!), but you can CLICK THIS LINK to see it. It's :14 seconds.
