KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA, December 30, 2000: Inspired to set a record that will never be challenged, 15 jumpers from 5 different countries have conspired to parachute consecutively from Malaysia's twin Petronas Towers, each 1,483 feet tall. Starting a few seconds before midnight on December 31st, the skydivers plan on successfully landing just past midnight for the actual beginning of the new millennium. Quoting Associated Press, "The jumpers will be leaping from one millennium and landing in another." According to one jumper, it will be one of the few times they are legally jumping off a building -- usually they face arrest for trespassing in pursuit of this very dangerous sport.
