Vancouver Police are condemning a video circulating on social media sites showing an individual sliding down a steep high-rise rooftop in Vancouver.
The video initially appeared on Instagram and shows a person sliding down the slanted rooftop with a camera strapped around their neck while someone else films.
There is no information about when the video was taken.
Cst. Jason Doucette, VPD media relations officer, told Daily Hive that he is not aware of an investigation into this particular incident.
“My first impression is that it’s very similar to rooftopping,” he said.
“Not only are the offenders putting themselves at risk, but they are also potentially putting the public and first responders in danger. If one of these people slips and falls, a first responder has to put their safety at risk to rescue the rooftopper. We encourage anyone who feels they are witnessing a criminal offence to contact their local police immediately.”
Long story short: you should never ever do this.
