In the city of Toronto, at the corner of Yonge and Wellesley Streets, there stood a crane. And on top of that crane, stood a girl. It was more like the pulley, but at one point she was at the top of the crane and slid down. It was at that time she was stuck on the pulley and became a citywide sensation.
Marisa Lazo, now known as Crane Girl, has a thirst for adventure based on her friend’s testimonials and her social media accounts. In what’s becoming a popular sport of Instagram, where a person takes pictures from dangerous positions, has now hit the mainstream. Lazo could easily be deceased right now.
According to her rescuer, “I have no idea how she did it,” Wonfor said of Lazo’s climb, adding that her boots appeared to have two-inch heels.
“She has to tell me how she did it because she has to be our new training officer for high-angle [rescue] because it’s impressive,” he said. “It was hard enough for me to go up with ropes and harnesses and she free-climbed that.”
Impressive as this feat is, it’s also going to influence someone to do something even crazier, and eventually, someone will end up dead.
Is it really worth the risk of Crane Girl type stunts just to post an Instagram photo that would get thousands of likes? For Millenials, this answer seems to be yes.
Marisa Lazo did escape with her life, thankfully. However, she will now face six charges of mischief and was released on a $500 bail. Will the consequences of her actions derail any further stunt attempts or will this only fuel her to be a bigger star in the future. If it’s the latter, will copy cats occur? And if so, what dumb things will people do just to be a social media star?
And that’s why Crane Girl is The Unbalanced Being of the Day.
