Woman charged with tossing chairs from Canada high-rise

Woman charged with tossing chairs from Canada high-rise

She was released on $2,000 bail and ordered to live with her mother.

Marcella Zoia, 19, turned herself in to Canadian police Wednesday morning after she posted the video of the stunt, which took place on a balcony in Toronto.

"This was not just something that was sort of a lark gone bad", he said.

One resident of the building from which the chair was thrown said she was angry when she learned what happened.

Strong peer pressure compelled a 19-year-old woman to hurl a chair over a highrise balcony down to Maple Leaf Square where it shattered, her lawyer said on Wednesday. The video sparked outrage everywhere with people who are angered that the falling chair could have killed someone. "Of course, she would never wish anyone would be hurt".

Police on Tuesday had said they knew her identity and were urging her to contact a lawyer and police.

The chairs landed near the front entrance of the towering condo, but there were no reports of injuries.

A source had told CityNews the woman has a criminal history and police have been in touch with her. Officers were giving her about 24 hours to turn herself in. "We'll see how this works, but that's a long way down the road", Leslie said.

"(She had) no regard for anybody that might be passing underneath", Const. David Hopkinson said, adding that the area is often filled with tourists and pedestrians.

It is believed that the apartment was being used as a short-term rental but Airbnb spokesman, Ben Breit, explained that the company had reached out to Toronto Police to offer their support. "This is irresponsible behavior that is unacceptable".

'I just hope that people take from the example the consequences that will befall this woman.

Leslie said she was under peer pressure and they are looking for the others involved.

"We are outraged by the blatant disregard for community safety on display in the video".
