A dumb woman was blasted by police for hanging from a high-rise balcony, just to get a photo.
The video posted by Australian news outlet 9News shows the woman hanging off the balcony railing on the 11th floor of the Mooloolaba Seaside Resort on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland.
A female friend is seen standing on a chair as she tries to let go of one of her hands to take a picture of her.
“That is f***ing dumb, isn’t it?” A man, who filmed the moment from a nearby building, was heard saying.
He told 9News: “Maybe the next picture was of her on the field.”
“I just figured one slip and she’s gone.”
Craig Hawkins, Superintendent of the Sunshine Coast, told reporters that the woman hanging over the balcony and the friend taking pictures could both face charges for what he called “foolish” conduct.
He said: “They risk their lives for something as trivial as a picture.”
I can’t make a good enough impression of how stupid this action is.
I just can’t understand why, for me, a young person or any individual will put their lives at risk for something as insignificant as that.
“These were all people that really should be put before a magistrate.”
