Each of the letters in "BASE" are an abbreviation for the four locations people use to jump from with parachutes: buildings, antennas (for TV stations or cell phone towers), spans (bridges) and the earth (cliffs, mountains).
In the news[edit | edit source]
In September 2013, three men jumped from the One World Trade Center in New York City. The building was still under construction then. They made a video of their jump using cameras on their heads. They then put it on YouTube. The jumpers and a helper on the ground were later arrested, after turning themselves in to police.
