Toronto Police are saying they are now investigating a video clip which surfaced on the social media platform, Reddit, over the weekend in which a young woman can be seen throwing a piece of patio furniture from a high rise condo balcony onto the busy Gardiner Expressway.
Although a version of the video recorded from Instagram shows its location tag as “Canada Toronto,” little else is known about the clip. Including when it was actually shot.
Based on the footage seen above, the incident seems to have taken place on the balcony of a high, south-facing unit near CityPlace or Fort York.
Here is more via CTV News:
Police are investigating after a video surfaced online of a woman throwing a chair off a Toronto condo balcony.
The clip, which has been shared thousands of times on Facebook since Saturday, shows a woman with blonde hair in black leather tossing a metal and wood chair from a condo balcony. The chair falls from several floors above ground, though it’s not clear how high.
The Toronto Police Service is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the woman, who is wanted in a mischief causing danger to life investigation.
The roads below appears to be Toronto’s Gardiner Expressway and Lakeshore Boulevard. Apparently taken on the Snapchat video app, the clip is captioned with a “Good morning” message and cuts out before the chair meets ground.
Police said there were no injuries and the chair landed in front of a building entrance. It is unclear when the video was taken, but police said in a statement that the incident allegedly occurred around 10 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 9. It is also alleged that other items were thrown from the balcony as well.
Users on social media voiced their disapproval of the woman in the clip over the weekend and into Monday.
“From that height that chair could kill someone instantly,” wrote one user on Facebook.
CTV Toronto reported that the Toronto Police Service’s cybercrime unit is investigating.
