A high-profile anti-fracking activist who often gives tours of natural gas drilling sites in northeastern Pennsylvania's Marcellus Shale region asked a judge Monday for relief from an order barring her from stepping foot on more than 300 square miles of land owned or leased by one of the state's leading natural gas drillers.
Four men accused of organizing a parachute jump from the top of the 104-story One World Trade Center in New York City in September were arrested after turning themselves in at a city police station on Monday, police said. Security cameras around the World Trade Center site had recorded at least two figures in black suits and black helmets landing and walking off into the night with their parachutes at about 3 a.m. local time on September 30. "They're professional thrill-seekers," Andrew Mancilla, a lawyer representing Brady, said in a telephone interview, adding that all four men would plead not guilty. Brady was employed as a construction worker at the World Trade Center site, police said.
