A spokesman for the New York City company that manages 1 World Trade Center says its head of security has resigned.
David Velazquez's resignation Friday comes just days after three skydiving enthusiasts, who parachuted off the nation's tallest skyscraper in September, were arrested. It also comes almost two weeks after authorities say a New Jersey teenager was able to sneak onto the site, climb to the top of the 1,776-foot tower and take pictures.
Spokesman Jordan Barowitz said The Durst Organization took over security of the tower in January. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey controls the site and is responsible for security around the perimeter.
Velazquez couldn't immediately be reached for comment. The New York Post first reported his departure.
