A dangerous stunt in New Westminster, B.C. on Sunday has drawn condemnation from local police, as they have posted a photo on Twitter Tuesday showing a person near the top of a crane, which they say is “not OK.”

According to the NWPD, an observant and distressed resident reported the climber to police out of concern for that person’s safety, and after speaking with witnesses, police believe the individual was on the crane taking photographs.

NWPD Sgt. Justine Thom says the Integrated Police Dog Service was called in to assist, but the climbing culprit was never located.
