CHICAGO — A viral video shows thrill-seekers walking along the edges — and swinging from metal bars — inside the unfinished Vista Tower, hundreds of feet in the air.

This video shows several men or teens “rooftopping,” or dangling off and walking along the edges of the towering, unfinished East Wacker Drive building. Vista Tower, when completed, will be 93 stories tall — making it one of Chicago’s tallest buildings.

It’s been under construction since 2016, slowly rising up into Chicago’s skyline.

The video was posted to the WorldStar Instagram account on Thursday night. WorldStar is known for sharing shocking videos with the potential to go viral; so far, the Vista Tower video has been “liked” more than 50,000 times.

It was not immediately clear when the video was shot.
