'That was sick': Coast BASE jumper films leap

THE heart-stopping moment a BASE jumper leaped off a building under construction in the Brisbane CBD has been captured on camera.

The footage, which appears to have been recorded from a camera attached to one jumper's head, was released by ABC News.

Two Sunshine Coast men, a Coast woman and a Deagon man were fined in Sandgate Magistrates Court earlier this month for the jump they made in July.
