Accused BASE-jumpers to appear in court

THREE Sunshine Coast residents accused of BASE-jumping from a Brisbane high-rise and flying across the Brisbane River will appear in court later this month after police initially ordered them to attend court on a public holiday.

Glass House Mountains woman Jasmine Alisha Melville was listed to appear in the Brisbane Arrest Court on Wednesday - the Ekka public holiday in Brisbane. Ms Melville and three men - two Bli Bli men aged 29 and 33, and a 31-year-old Deagon man - have been charged with performing an unregulated high-risk activity.

The court heard police believe the three BASE-jumped off a South Bank high rise and landed in the Botanic Gardens on the other side of the river. Police Prosecutor Senior Sergeant Mark Gorton said the police had initially scheduled all four accused to appear in court on Wednesday before they "realised their mistake" and rescheduled the four to appear later this month. - ARM NEWSDESK
