The video has been viewed over 2.7 million times on Twitter, and shows a very familiar Chicago structure but with some very scary circumstances. A man by the name Mike Dobija posted the following video which saw him with a group of people on one of the Chicago River’s bridges as it’s raised. From the background in the video, it appears they were on the Well Street bridge specifically, as you can see the Merchandise Mart in the background.
Yeah, how is that even possible? Well, this video and some investigation from CWB Chicago gives more insight into the story and debunks misinformation about the video which was already spreading.
Somehow I just know the joke “Probably a Packers fan” has been posted in the comments a hundred times.
DO NOT DO THIS! It is obviously very dangerous, to say the least.
Um. Wow. So a guy named Mike Dobija posted this video that he claims was made after the city raised a bridge while he and his friends were still on it. That hasn't been confirmed. But the video is…. #Chicagohttps://t.co/825pdEnZKI pic.twitter.com/bquoRBuAZj
