In an image provided by Toronto Police Services, two people can be seen climbing the crane and taking photos.
At this time, the identities of the individuals have not been revealed, and authorities are encouraging others not to follow suit, or they could face criminal charges.
This hasn’t been the only case of crane climbers in the city, either. ChaseTO, a well-known YouTuber who infamously performs stunts of this nature, posted a video to his channel this week showing him atop a crane in the heart of downtown Toronto.
