A viral video shows a bridge being raised in downtown Chicago with people on it:
A viral video shows six people sitting atop a raised bridge over the Chicago River, with a caption declaring the city lifted the bridge while they were walking across it, leaving them stranded.
But city officials don’t believe that claim, calling the group trespassers who engaged in “extremely reckless and potentially deadly behavior.” And the video’s poster uploaded video showing him climbing a raised Downtown bridge just months ago.
The video shows six people sitting on top of the raised Franklin-Orleans Street bridge, high over the river. The group is sitting on the edge of the north side of the bridge as the bridge deck is virtually perpendicular to the ground.
