Anti-capitalist protester scales Chase Bank in NYC, fails miserably


Anti-capitalism protesters descended on Manhattan Friday – and video captured one scaling up the front of a Chase Bank before taking an epic plunge to the ground.

Footage taken by FreedomNews.TV and posted to Twitter shows a demonstrator climbing up the bank building on Madison Avenue between East 46th and 47th streets as drum beats and chants are heard as well as a man shouting for the protester to “get down!”

Another protester is seen defacing the building with spray paint as the other demonstrator continues to make his way up shortly before 5 p.m.

The climbing protester suddenly lost his grip and plummeted down to the sidewalk, the video shows.

Other demonstrators rushed quickly over to him as he lay injured on the ground before black paint inside a spray can seeped out of his bag and all over the sidewalk.

First responders then arrived on the scene to render aid to the protester.

The man was ultimately taken to Bellevue Hospital, officials said.
