    The Niagara Falls Review quotes Niagara Casinos President Richard Taylor who says they have launched an investigation into the stunt.

    He says the actions of the individuals were incredibly dangerous and that behavior is not condoned.

    I wonder how he feels about sending his employees up to those exact same spots to do maintenance? I bet it's no longer incredibly dangerous and is very much condoned.

    That's a little different considering training, safety regulations, proper equipment, I could go on.

    The public "sneaking to the rooftop" to pull stupid stunts like this is dangerous and idiotic.

    All that high tech gear and they use a rock to keep the access door open? SMH. It didn’t seem very windy up there, which struck me as very odd.

    About once a month I’ll see a headline about someone taking a selfie and falling off a cliff, bridge..whatever to their death. The lengths that some people go to to get social media attention boggles my mind.

    Yeah, not really. At last not to his statement. As the film shows they were on maintenance cat walks the entire time. If their maintenance staff is union I'm betting that quote ends up in negotiations next contract.

    Looks like we have a few more candidates for the 2021 Darwin Awards. :kill: If you check out their YouTube page, it looks like they've been doing these crazy stunts for awhile now. Needless to say, karma will catch up to them sooner or later. :whistle:

    For what it's worth, that's a capital "I" and not a lowercase "l" in the write-up. ;)

    This may sound harsh but stupid is as stupid does. These people will eventually seriously hurt or kill themselves.

    I am surprised though that those hatches and doors to the roof don't have some door sensor on them to notify security that they have been opened.

    In all my years in construction, I've never seen access to roofs on commercial buildings left unsecured. Latches and doors are locked and tied into security consoles and any breach will set off an alarm.

    At the very least they are locked and the keys in the hands of an RME.

    Maybe this particular shenanigan was the result of an inside endeavor.

    That’s pretty cool that they leave those doors open and allow that access there. I’ve never had luck finding an opportunity like that in Vegas.
