Police say they are "very concerned" about footage showing a schoolie 'balcony hopping' during end of year celebrations in Surfers Paradise.
The clip, filmed on Snapchat, shows a girl climbing over the high-rise railing as one of her friends can be heard saying "this isn't going to be funny when she falls".
Chief Superintendent Terry Borland said it's total stupidity and they're begging with schoolies to make "smart decisions".
"I'm astounded why people would do that, it's stupidity and high risk, it could have a bad outcome," he said in a press conference on Monday.
"We're just here hoping and trusting that people make smart decisions, because if you hop from balcony to balcony and you slip, you may not be hopping ever again."
Four years ago, a Brisbane schoolie lost her life after plunging to her death from the Chevron Renaissance complex.
