Toronto fire crews cut down vehicle dangling from bridge, police investigating

Police believe a prank is behind the discovery of a auto dangling from a bridge near the Don Valley Parkway on Wednesday morning, puzzling police and pedestrians below. They have contacted the city, which informed police that there is no movie shoot authorized.

The auto was just a shell that had been stripped of its engine, windows and seats and had no license plates. Police allege that Lopez Elora, 38, flew the dogs on commercial flights from Colombia to NY, where the drugs were removed and sold.

Emergency services managed to get the auto down on the ground by 10:30 a.m. Police and emergency services attended the area and determined there was no hazard.

It took the combined efforts of 14 firefighters and three fire trucks to get that vehicle down, The Toronto Star reported.

It's now being treated as a mischief investigation, and Sidhu said police believe it was intended as some sort of prank.

"I haven't seen anything like this in 30 years", Ratushniak said.

"I was mystified as to how the auto ended up there ..."

Commenting on the situation on Wednesday morning, Mayor John Tory said he was "mystified" when he saw the vehicle dangling from the bridge on television this morning.

"You're always very puzzled as to how a vehicle would have got into that particular situation", Tory told the City News. 'If it's a prank, then obviously the law should apply to people who are doing things like that'.

This isn't the first time a auto has been hung from a bridge as part of a stunt.
