The video, posted to YouTube on April 8, shows a man climb a construction crane at the intersection of High and Rich Streets, walk to the edge and jump.
The nearly four-minute video had nearly 8,000 views as of Wednesday night.
The person who posted the video labeled â€œCrane Swingâ€ appears to be the same individual swinging from the crane, a local tree-trimmer.
â€œItâ€™s extremely dangerous,â€ said Battalion Chief Tracy Smith with the Columbus Division of Fire. â€œThey probably wouldnâ€™t survive the fall [had the tether broken].â€
Smith said Wednesday was the first time sheâ€™d heard of the video, and planned to discuss it with her colleagues.
Police reportedly stated that it would be up to the property owner to press charges.
