Two daredevils who posted a video of themselves climbing the unfinished Trump International Hotel & Tower in downtown Vancouver could face charges if identified.

The video, posted to YouTube on April 27, recently gained attention as it was shared amongst various social media outlets. In in the video, two men jump the fence of the Trump Tower construction site, climb the exterior structure to record the view, and enter the unfinished building, before climbing back down and hitting the streets.

One of the men wore a GoPro camera to record the stunt, which clearly captured the face of the second man involved in the incident.

Speaking to Global News, Constable Brian Montague said that should the identities of the two men by learned by police, they could potentially face criminal charges for the stunt.

Police have not received any reports of the incident, but if the property owner or developer wished to file charges, a full investigation would be launched.

Trump Tower Vancouver is still under construction, but it has reached its pinnacle height of 616 feet, making it the second tallest building in B.C. The project is scheduled for a 2016 opening.
