Burj base jumper

This has to be the best two grand ever spent:

Dubai: A British skydiver who jumped off Burj Dubai's 150th floor with a parachute strapped to his back has been fined Dh2,000.

Meanwhile, a French skydiver was slapped a similar fine after the security guards stopped him at the 24th floor before he reached Burj Dubai's rooftop and jumped with a parachute.

Punters would probably stump up twice that for a legal dive off the Deathspire. And this guy holds the crown of being the first to base the Burj - for just 2k.

Certainly a new and lucrative angle for DTCM to explore.

I bet the CID took him in as soon as he landed.

New Growth Tourist Industry until someones' parachute does not open. Good publicity though. This will increase the mystic of the Burj Dubai
