RIVER NORTH — Police released photos of the three men who allegedly jumped from the roof of Trump Tower wearing parachutes early Thursday morning.
Police received reports about 12:30 a.m. Thursday that three had jumped from the highest access point of the building, according to Officer Ron Gaines, a Chicago Police Department spokesman.
Gaines said that point of the skyscraper, 401 N. Wabash Ave., is not open to the public, and police did not say early Thursday how the group gained access to the building.
But that was the first question on some people's minds downtown Thursday.
"How did they even get up there?" Mario Jackson asked just outside the skyscraper. "It's the Trump Tower, they got a lot of security there."
Police said the jumpers destroyed the lock to access the top roof using "some sort of cutting tool."
When asked if he was surprised someone would jump off the 92-story building, Jackson said "not really."
"People do crazy things, and that was crazy," he said. "I'm glad they lived."
No one was in custody as of late Thursday morning, and police are investigating. No injuries were reported.
Sherry Dalton, who works next door to the tower, said she was "very surprised" the jumpers were able to get evade getting arrested.
"Chicago is such a busy city," Dalton said. "I would think that somebody would have followed them or seen where they went."
But Dalton said what was most surprising is that the group could bring themselves to jump.
"I just couldn't imagine jumping from that high," she said with a giggle.
Officials at Trump Tower declined to comment on the jumpers.
