The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has condemned the parachute jump off 1 World Trade Center last fall by four skydiving enthusiasts as a ``lawless and selfish act that clearly endangered the public.''

The agency said in a statement released early Tuesday that one of the jumpers was a construction worker at the site.

The Port Authority, which owns the trade centre site, says ``the spirit of respect and reverence for this sacred site'' was violated.

Four men were arrested Monday in connection with the ``base jumping'' on Sept. 30. They were arraigned on charges of burglary, reckless endangerment and misdemeanour jumping from a structure.

Police Commissioner William Bratton says ``being a thrill-seeker does not give immunity from the law.''
