Two CNN producers have been arrested for repeatedly trying to enter a restricted area in the One World Trade Center.

Yon Pomrenze and Connor Boals were charged with trespassing, obstructing governmental administration, and disorderly conduct after trying to sneak into the restricted area of the World Trade Center. According to CNN, the two were doing a story on the building and why daredevils seemed to be drawn there, but CNN said they did not authorize them to trespass.

This inspired antic comes after a New Jersey teen slipped through the fence and climbed to the top of the spire to take photos, and four people pulled the crazy stunt of base jumping off the 1,776 ft. tower.

New Yorkers, many of whom lost loved ones in the 9/11 attacks, are understandably upset about the lapses in security. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has promised to work with the port authority to close the gaps in security.
