    Three people broke into Chicago's Trump International Hotel and Tower overnight and jumped from the top of the building with parachutes, police said.

    The trio of BASE jumpers used "a cutting device to gain entry" at 401 N. Wabash Ave. and then jumped from the building's highest point at about 12:30 a.m. Thursday, police News Affairs confirmed.

    Police said there were no injuries. Trump Tower stands 1,389 feet on the Chicago River.

    It's not known how long the trio was in the building before the jump, and according to an initial investigation, nothing appeared to be stolen.

    Surveillance images released Thursday showed three white men in a stairwell of the building.

    The incident remains under investigation and police are looking for the jumpers, who could face trespassing charges if arrested.
