Toronto police are investigating after a woman was filmed throwing a chair off the balcony of a high-rise building and onto the Gardiner Expressway.

A video shared on Reddit Sunday night shows a young-looking blonde woman on a balcony grab a chair, peer over a railing, and pause to say something to the camera before hurling the chair over the balcony and onto the Gardiner Expressway. The Gardiner is a multi-lane expressway in the city’s downtown core.

The nine-second video looks as if it was originally posted to Snapchat, and features the caption, “Good morning.”

Toronto police spokesman David Hopkinson told VICE the cops are aware of the video and hope to have an update later today.

This isn’t the first time people have thrown chairs onto the Gardiner, apparently. The motivation behind the trend remains unclear. Though in this most recent case, whoever was doing the filming should probably have intervened.
