It looks like the woman who went viral for throwing a chair off a high-rise balcony onto the Gardiner Expressway is now being sought by Toronto Police in an investigation. Toronto Police released a news statement just before 12:30 PM on Monday afternoon. Police are working to identify the woman in what they call a "Mischief-Endanger Life" investigation.
Toronto Police are requesting the public's assistance in ID'ing the woman, who reportedly threw the chair from a condominium building near Harbour and York Streets. Officers commenced the investigation on Sunday, February 10th - the same day that the video surfaced and began to go viral.
In the video, the woman can be seen gleefully tossing a chair over the balcony. The chair tumbles down and gets swept up by the wind, floating dangerously above moving cars on the busy Expressway. The chair narrowly misses a white van, before landing in front of the entrance of another condo building.
According to police, the incident allegedly occurred on Saturday, February 9th at around 10:00 AM. Police allege that "other items" were thrown from the balcony as well, "from a very high floor". It's likely that residents of the building brought the incident to the attention of police, as it was stated online that many of them came together to file a formal complaint.
