A daredevil photoshoot on the roof of the Trump International Hotel & Tower in downtown Vancouver was cut short by police Thursday evening.
The hair-raising stunt was captured by a CTV News camera mounted on the nearby Shangri-La Hotel, which recorded a man posing on his back on the ledge of the 63-storey tower around 8 p.m.
After the man stood up to adjust his own camera, he was interrupted by police and security guards, who ushered him off the building.
His shoot was the latest in a long line of death-defying stunts performed atop high-rises and other urban architecture, many of which end up on social media sites.
“It’s grown into a business for me,” said Alex Parsons of Roam Vancouver, a company that specializes in rooftop photography. Man caught posing on edge of Trump Tower roof in Vancouver | CTV Vancouver News
