A woman was charged after she was accused of throwing a chair off the balcony of a high-rise in Toronto reports said

The woman at the centre of a social media video where she appeared to be throwing items over a Toronto condo balcony over the weekend has turned herself in.

The woman wanted for a Mischief - Endanger Life investigation after throwing a chair from a downtown condo balcony surrendered to authorities this morning.

Zoia made a brief court appearance on Wednesday afternoon and was released on C$2,000 (US$1,500) bail and ordered to live with her mother.

She turned herself in at a police station at around 7 a.m. "I hope they would've concluded that earlier on".

While no one was hurt, someone could very easily have been hit, said Hopkinson, calling throwing the chair "very callous" due to the apparent disregard.

A flurry of emails, calls, and other information came through shortly after the video was published, helping police determine who the woman was. CTV News cites a law enforcement source saying that the chair was recovered close to the building's entrance and was damaged "almost beyond recognition". "This is irresponsible behaviour that is unacceptable", Toronto Mayor John Tory said.

'It was not just a lark gone bad.

"(She had) no regard for anybody that might be passing underneath", Const. David Hopkinson said, adding that the area is often filled with tourists and pedestrians. He added, "This could have caused death or injury and is not acceptable".

In a statement released late Tuesday, Airbnb said it would look into whether any of its users were involved in the incident.

"It's clear Ms. Zoia is the one who threw the chair", said Leslie. "We will be suspending any guest's accounts that appear to be connected to this incident".
