WLNS TV6 reports that around 5:30 yesterday evening, a 30 year old man got over the fence surrounding the WLAJ TV 53 news tower in Rives Junction, south of Lansing.

The guy climbed the one thousand foot tower with a parachute, intending to base-jump off the tower.  He jumped. The parachute didn't open.
