More residents evacuated as work to dismantle collapsed Halifax crane begins

  More residents evacuated as work to dismantle collapsed Halifax crane begins HALIFAX — Crews in Halifax have begun work to dismantle a crane that toppled onto a building during post-tropical storm Dorian. The crane collapsed on Sept. 7 and some residents and businesses have since been evacuated. This week, residents in 11 additional units of the Trillium condo building were advised to vacate by Sunday morning so work could begin. A spokeswoman for Nova Scotia's Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal says the project involves removing portions of the crane that are hanging off the building, including front and counterweight jibs.

Skydiving is a pretty extreme sport. However, one man attempted to take it a step further by attempting to jump off a crane in downtown Toronto with a parachute. A Toronto man’s thrill-seeking stunt was cut short on Sunday night after police detained him for breaking into a building and attempting to scale a crane so that he could jump off it.

According to Toronto Police Services, a man was arrested after illegally entering a building near Yonge and Yorkville. The suspect then climbed onto a crane, located at the top of the skyscraper, with a parachute in hand, he was ready to take skydiving to a whole new level.

Man charged in multi-vehicle crash that injured 4 pedestrians in downtown Toronto

  Man charged in multi-vehicle crash that injured 4 pedestrians in downtown Toronto Toronto police say they have now charged a 54-year-old man from Brampton after he allegedly blew through a red light striking four pedestrians and multiple cars at a major, busy intersection downtown back in August.Police were called to Bay and College streets on Aug. 22 at around 3:20 p.m. for reports of a collision.

With a parachute on, you can still hope to land safely, but jumping out of an aircraft without a parachute is obviously a last resort, so it should only be considered when there’s no Before actually jumping out, you should try to find a large object that you can ‘ride’ during your imminent free fall.

If you think skydiving is scary, try doing it from twice the usual height and without a parachute . After two minutes of free-fall, you must position yourself to land on a net less than half the size of a football field, spread out 200 feet above the earth. On Saturday, Luke Aikins took that challenge.

However, the man was ultimately arrested before he could jump. The incident caused roads in the area to be shut down. Security on-site spotted the man at around 10 p.m. on Sunday.

What makes this situation even more bizarre is that it keeps happening in Toronto! It got so bad that last year, the police issued an official warning to base jumpers. "It is the city. There are buildings, there are obstacles, and regardless of what someone's ability is, there is always that possibility for danger, things can happen," Constable Allyson Douglas-Cook told CBC.

"We strongly discourage this kind of activity in the city," Douglas-Cook added.

Back in May, a parachute was spotted gliding downtown near Sherbourne and Rosedale Valley Road. People who saw the stunt were stunned, but according to the president of the Parachute School of Toronto, Adam Mabee, it happens a lot.

"It's probably more common than most people would think." He told CTV, "Usually it’s done very quietly and out of sight. Sometimes people do see it like this, but I think most of them happen without many witnesses."

Thankfully, no one was hurt during this incident, but police are reminding all daredevils to think twice before scaling a construction crane.

So, If you’re thinking about base jumping off a building in Toronto, which you shouldn't be, just try to remember these two things, it's not an original idea, and it's also highly illegal.
