Toronto’s ‘Crane Girl’ Granted Release on $500 Bail


If you aren’t living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about the infamous ‘crane girl’ who climbed a construction crane in downtown Toronto yesterday. Well, after hours of firefighters and responders trying to rescue her, she was taken down safely, and then charged with six counts of public mischief. But today, Marisa Lazo, 23, was granted release on $500 bail on the condition she not enter construction sites or go on any rooftops.


Two of Lazo’s friends told reporters gathered outside that they did not believe Lazo has any mental health issues.

An Instagram account belonging to Lazo featured several photos of Lazo standing or dangling her feet on the ledge of Toronto buildings. She has been linked to participating in an Instagram trend called #rooftopping, where you climb high heights and post them on Instagram. The account has since been taken down.

Lazo is due to appear in court again in May.
