A video recently posted on social media captured an unknown man’s sensational plunge from the top of a three-storey building into the waters of Venice.
Footage shows him plunging into the adjacent San Pantalon stream, behind Campo Santa Margherita, and later climbing back to shore where a second person was waiting for him.
Several residents, accustomed to such shenanigans, commented astonishingly. Venice mayor Luigi Brugnaro says authorities are looking for the man to fine him.
“This guy,” he says, “should be given a certificate of stupidity and a lot of foot stomping. We are trying to identify him, to report him. He and his crony below,” he concluded, “who was making cretinous videos for social media”.
