The mother of all pranks in mid­town

Annex Post - - NEWS -

A cou­ple of pranksters (or pos­si­bly a lone wolf?) pulled off an elab­o­rate hoax in Lea­side last month by some­how sus­pend­ing a ve­hi­cle from the Mill­wood Bridge. The stunt left many dumb­founded as to how the car got there and prompted a ma­jor emer­gency ser­vices re­sponse. Po­lice, fire­fight­ers and paramedics all showed up on the scene to find the car gut­ted, with no en­gine or pas­sen­gers in­side. The mys­tery act of mis­chief wasn’t ex­actly le­gal, and safety was a top con­cern as the car dan­gled above the Don River and a pop­u­lar hik­ing trail. The Toronto Po­lice Ser­vice is still in­ves­ti­gat­ing. In the mean­time, many of us are left won­der­ing: who was re­spon­si­ble? A rogue en­gi­neer from the Univer­sity of Toronto? Or mu­sic video mis­fits? Who­ever it was, you have to ad­mire their in­ge­nu­ity.

MIS­CHIEF MAN­AGED Hood­lums hung a sedan from the Mill­wood Bridge us­ing a cable.
