The woman who was filmed throwing a patio chair off the balcony of a high-rise Toronto Airbnb has turned herself in to police.

Marcella Zoia was wanted by police after footage of her surfaced online.

In the video, she throws the chair over the balcony railing, on to the busy motorway far below. The video cuts off before the chair lands, but police reported it was lucky no one was harmed.

Zoia surrendered herself to police at 7am on Wednesday morning. She was cooperative with police, reports CBC.

The 19-year-old appeared in court on Wednesday afternoon, reports CBC. She was released on $2,000 bail and has been ordered to live with her mother.

She is also banned from having any contact with the four individuals alleged to be with her at the time of the event.

"She is embarrassed by what happened. She wished it never happened. Of course she would never wish anyone would be hurt" said Zoia's lawyer Greg Leslie.

"This is irresponsible behaviour that is unacceptable," Toronto Mayor John Tory told CBC "It was not just a lark gone badly. It was grossly irresponsible behaviour that could have caused serious injury and death."

Her next court appearance is scheduled for 22nd March.
