Two men found guilty of jumping off the top of New York's One World Trade Center, the Western Hemisphere's tallest building, were each sentenced to a $2,000 fine and community service on Monday in a Manhattan state court.Andrew Rossig, 34, and James Brady, 33, are two out of the three BASE jumpers who parachuted from the top of the 104-story building in the early hours of Sept. 30, 2013 . The skyscraper stands on the location where more than 2,700 people were killed on Sep. 11, 2001 when hijacked planes slammed into the twin World Trace Center towers. The new building was still under construction when the jumpers pulled off their stunt early on Sept. 30, 2013 .
