    damnit, I was hoping someone would have already asked why that was illegal so I didn`t have to look like an idiot asking...oh well. Anyone know why it`s illegal? is it becuase it`s private property or something?

    His splattered body was found moments later and he was identified by his favorite Jimmy Buffet t-shirt.

    @JUGGALETTE, it`s illegal because it`s frakking dangerous. You`re so low that any problems with the chute will kill you.

    hey, that`s on Pacific Coast Highway. Little note of advise for anybody who cares, if you`re heading from San Fransisco to L.A., and you have 12 hours to spare, i suggest PCH. Pretty drive, but damn was that a long ride.

    The legal issues that basejumpers must consider concern permissions to use the object from which the jump is initiated and the area used for landing. Basejumping itself is not illegal.

    I don`t think a person should be arrested for putting their own life in danger. It`s his life, he can risk it if he wants to.

    I don`t think a person should be arrested for putting their own life in danger.

    I don`t entirely agree, suicide can ruin other people`s lives especially the ones of those they know. To that end it was obvious this guy wasn`t trying to commit suicide he was BASE jumping and knew what he was doing. Even the officer could see that.

    In short if this guy did not have that gear on, the cop would`ve been well within his duty and right to intervene.

    That was awesome. If it was me id be like "nerp, i m out" and try to hide somewhere on the coast, then again idk how far id get with a parachute. Oh and the Clashs version of the song was better.

    Of course he was. A good cop will always remain cool. The ones that get angry shouldn`t be cops.

    Holy crap! I know that bridge too, and that`s a *really* short drop for a BASE jump.
    Which explains his technique; there`s barely enough room for a pilot chute assist. It`s hard to tell from the view, but it looks like he was starting to inflate the bag in the wind blowing under the bridge, and then somersaulted over the bag to keep it inflated. That`s a pretty badass jump...

    lisalezah - base jumping in and of itself is not illegal, if you are doing it on private property and have the permission of the property owner.
