Authorities in Chicago are looking for three
daredevils who jumped from the highest point
of the Trump International Hotel and Tower
and parachuted down early Thursday.
"Police say they used some sort of cutting
tool to break in and make their way to the
roof. It's not clear where they landed but
police say by the time they got there they
were long gone."

And doing it illegally was really only part
of the risk —
To put this in perspective for you, the trio
jumped from the 92nd story. That's more than
1,000 feet from the ground.

The last people to jump from the tower legally
were members of the Red Bull air force for
the "Transformers 3" movie.
Investigators have released surveillance photos
of the men making their way up the stairs.
One man isn't even sure how they could pull
it off.
"I don't know how anyone would get up there
on the 91st floor of the building, it is like
Fort Knox."

Fortunately, no injuries were reported and
according to an initial investigation, nothing
appeared to be stolen. If the men are caught
they could face trespassing charges.
