In a shocking incident that unfolded in the heart of Manhattan, a person was caught on camera hurling furniture and other objects from the top of a high-rise building.

The incident, which took place on East 46th Street and 5th Avenue in midtown Manhattan, was captured in broad daylight on Tuesday, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The video, which has since gone viral, shows an unidentified individual recklessly tossing large patio furniture off the roof of a skyscraper. Witnesses on the ground managed to film the individual as they launched a wooden chair over the edge, which subsequently crashed into scaffolding below, causing pedestrians to flee in panic.

The individual did not stop at the chair, however. They continued to throw what appeared to be planks of wood and a chunk of concrete, which were seen drifting through the sky, carried by the wind. The video, shared by Conor Strong via Storyful, has left social media users in disbelief over the dangerous behavior they witnessed.

Social media users have expressed their shock and concern over the incident. One user commented, "Bring back mental institutions. It’s everywhere. Every day." Another viewer shared a personal anecdote, writing, "My ex would do stuff like this during a mood swing. Once because I bought new shoes for myself but didn't come home with anything for her. Most of my stuff was quickly out the window." The safety of New Yorkers was also a common concern, with one user asking, "Was he arrested? That could kill somebody below."

The New York Police Department (NYPD) is actively investigating the incident and is seeking to identify the individual responsible for the reckless act. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported. However, this incident serves as a stark reminder of the dangers of falling debris in New York City. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that over 50,000 people are hit by falling debris in the city each year, including not only construction workers but also everyday individuals walking down the street.
