The man, 31, entered the tower on Monday evening with a hidden parachute and a helmet that had a small video camera attached to it, said the official at Paris' police headquarters. Upon reaching the Eiffel Tower's 115-meter-high (380-foot-high) second deck, the man jumped.

He continued his fall without the parachute, crashing onto the 55-meter-high (182-foot-high) first deck of the famous Paris landmark, according to police and an official for SNTE, the company that manages the Eiffel Tower"
