On New Years Eve Riga 2011 a Base Jumper leaped from the top of Hotel Latvia. As for now no one knows who the jumper was or why it took place. Police are investigating.

What a way to exit 2011! Base jumping from the Hotel Latvia at 12.30 with traffic passing by! The jumper was assisted on the ground by a man who stopped traffic, helped him collect the parachute, before being whisked off on a motorbike. It appears that the parachute was taken away in another vehicle. Madness! Enjoy the video folks!
