A source had told CityNews the woman has a criminal history and police have been in touch with her. Officers were giving her about 24 hours to turn herself in.

"Her or her representative arranged for her to surrender", said Toronto Police spokesperson David Hopkinson in an email to Daily Hive.

Zoia is charged with mischief endangering life, mischief endangering property and common nuisance.

Speaking after his client's bail hearing, lawyer Greg Leslie said the woman had a "momentary lapse in judgment" when she pitched a chair over the 55 Bremner Blvd. balcony.

A 19-year-old woman has turned herself in to Canadian police to face charges of allegedly throwing two chairs from a 45th storey balcony in Toronto, narrowly missing cars on a road below. "She never wished anyone would be hurt", said Leslie.

"We are outraged by the blatant disregard for community safety on display in the video", said spokesman Ben Breit.
