Wisconsin teens Peter Teatime and Tommy Rector have brass balls and climbing skills that I can only dream of. The two daredevils were somehow able to climb to the top of the 746-foot Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California.
They posted a video to YouTube of their stunt, which is not for the faint of heart. Check out the wild footage below.
Jesus, teenagers are crazy these days. Whatever happened to a good, old fashioned game of ding dong ditch to get the blood flowing? I feel like if you can’t get killed and/or arrested, teens want nothing to do with it anymore. Those guys were dangling off that goddamn bridge like Forrest Gump chilling from a tree.
Perhaps the most insane part of this whole ordeal is that Teatime and Rector were able to get pass the security measures in the first place. Authorities didn’t even know these kids were on the Golden Gate Bridge until their YouTube video went viral. I guess Donald Trump‘s dumbass revealed that confidential information also.
Here’s the HuffPost with more.
Denis Mulligan, general manager of the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District, called the climbers’ behavior “reckless” and said they could have done “serious harm” to motorists below had they fallen. “The Golden Gate Bridge is not an amusement park ride,” he said, per Curbed.
Teatime and Rector escaped detection on the landmark because motion sensors and cameras were not targeting where they were, Mulligan said.
An investigation that includes Homeland Security is ongoing, the San Mateo Daily Journal reported Wednesday. Climbing the bridge is punishable by up to a year in jail, the Journal said.
A Golden Gate Bridge amusement park ride would be pretty sweet, though. Make it happen, Disney!
