Toronto police say they have identified the woman shown in a video of a chair being thrown from a downtown condominium balcony.
The nine-second video was posted to Facebook Saturday and has since been viewed more than 680,000 times. It shows a woman tossing a chair off the balcony of a downtown condo. The chair then falls several floors to the ground. It is not believed anybody was injured by the chair.
A photo posted online showed two mangled chairs resembling the one in the video sitting on a sidewalk.
Police asked the public Monday for help identifying the woman, saying they were investigating the incident as a case of mischief endangering life.
Police told CTV Toronto Tuesday that they had been in contact with “either the perpetrator herself or her representative” and were discussing arrangements for the woman to surrender.
