Boston mayor: Stop 'snowjumping'
18 February 2015, 11:39
Boston - Boston Mayor Marty Walsh has warned residents overwhelmed by massive snowfalls to stop recording videos of themselves jumping out of windows and into snowbanks.
The Boston Herald reports Walsh chastised thrill-seekers who've been filming themselves performing the frosty feat and then posting the videos on social media websites.
Walsh says, "It's a foolish thing to do, and you could kill yourself."
On Monday, he said the stunts are dangerous as Boston city workers struggle to clear snow-clogged streets and deal with snowbanks up to 3m high.
The city has scrambled to keep roads clear after the record-breaking snowfalls.
