Teens' Harrowing, High-Wire Antics On Golden Gate Bridge Captured On Video

One climber appeared to be holding on to the cables as they sprinted toward one of the bridge's main towers. The pair also dangled their bodies over the edge of one of the bridge's towers, with only their fingertips stopping them from making the long fall to the ground below.

According to the DailyMail, the teenagers were able to climb the structure 746-foot structure in about ten minutes, after slipping under security fences unnoticed.

A climber scales the Golden Gate Bridge.

The video received a stern rebuke Tuesday from Dennis Mulligan, general manager of the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District.

The daredevils were youth from Wisconsin, Peter Teatime, 18, and Tommy Rector.

'But for any explorer the Golden Gate Bridge is an absolute must-do, as it's the tallest bridge in the USA and such an iconic structure, ' he said.

Clapper: Comey Was 'Uneasy' About Trump Dinner
CNN said Comey is "not anxious about any tapes" Trump may have, citing an unnamed source familiar with the matter. (2) Mr. A spokesman for Democratic leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) said the details on the timing are still being worked out.

There are no alarms on the Golden Gate for "reckless behavior", he said, but officials going forward will be looking at new security procedures.

"The Golden Gate Bridge isn't a playground", spokesperson Priya David Clemens said in a statement. "It is vital public infrastructure and it's a symbol of our community".

"I want to assure you the bridge is safe", said bridge Capt. Lisa Locati. "As long as we are not hurting anyone, I don't see anything wrong with it".

The daredevils said they would be willing to consult with officials on how to improve security.

The district said in a statement that security systems keep people from harming the bridge, but acknowledged that the trespassing incident "raises questions about how such an unauthorized climb was possible and the potential harm to drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and the climbers themselves".

It is unclear if the two face any charges in connection with their climb.

Locati said the bridge's security system was "not created to protect thrill-seekers from harming themselves".
