The updated report from the police said the officers had located the two women and issued them a ticket for trespassing.

They were allegedly filming a dance video for social media.

“We’re big supporters of the arts. We’re not supporters of people risking their lives for dramatic performances or social media status,” the Peel police said.

They then said “make better choices” on their Twitter update.

Metrolinx’s senior manager of media, Anne Marie Aikins, also commented on the incident saying, “if you’re filming anything on the tracks anytime for the views, you could end up with a viewing that will break your mother’s heart.”

She added to never do it, or there will be trespassing charges.
