BASE Jumpers Add Extreme Style To Dine and Dash
Pictured: The Rialto Towers
Four guys in Australia dined and dashed in extreme style.
The men, dressed in business suits, entered Melbourne’s Rialto Towers and ordered cocktails at a restaurant bar on the 55th floor, News.com.au reported. Then, they jumped off the balcony before deploying parachutes, which were hidden under their suits, landing safely on the ground. Just like a movie script, a getaway car around the corner took the daredevils away from the scene of the crime.
They chose a great location. The Rialto, which measures 823 feet from floor to roof, is the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere. Witness accounts came from a nearby resident watching from indoors, people on the street and a man canoeing on the Yarra River. The restaurant owner says the guys had cameras on their helmets, so it’s just a matter of time until an epic video makes its way to YouTube.
