BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
A video uploaded to YouTube two days ago shows a person parachuting from the 12th floor of the Sheraton Hotel in Birmingham.
But it's unlikely that any charges will be filed against the jumper.
Birmingham police say no charges have been filed in the incident because they were never called. In addition,
the video is very grainy and it would be difficult to make a positive
identification of the jumper.
"We don't have any information on
this incident because we were not called to investigate. Without an
investigation of what happened, I can't say what charges, if any, would
apply," Birmingham Police Sgt. Johnny Williams said.
"Friend is base jumping inside the hotel in Birmingham, Alabama from 12 stories up," is the only explanation accompanying the grainy video.
BASE jumping refers to an often-riskey stunt in which someone parachutes from one of four fixed objects: buildings, antennas, spans and earth.
In the 36 second video, a person in dark clothing jumps from the top floor inside the hotel, then quickly deploys a green and black parachute.
