Skooter reporting 03/14/12
The event is amazing and fun but for authorities the act is risky and overall stupid. Four daredevils in business suits ordered cocktails before doing BASE jumping from the Rialto Towers in Melbourne's CBD last night.
It was reported that four thrill-seekers made the jump from the 243-meter skyscraper about 7:30 pm, freefalling or plummeting down before opening their parachutes for a soft landing. Before leaping out they had been drinking at the plush Vue de monde restaurant, on Level 55 of the 56-floor building, before the leap.
Shannon Bennett, restaurant owner said the thrill-seekers wore business suits, walked into the venue’s Lui Bar carrying travel suitcases and ordered Negroni cocktails before hurling themselves off the building.Read full story - CHEQUE, PLEASE: Daredevils leap from Rialto Towers after drinks
