Police said the apartment the furniture was allegedly tossed from was being used as a "short-term rental property" but could not say which company it was rented through. While the video ends before the chair hits the ground, police said the chair was found damaged "almost beyond recognition" at the entrance of a nearby building.
Airbnb responded in a statement.
"This was not just something that was sort of a lark gone bad", he said.
"We are outraged by the blatant disregard for community safety on display in the video. This is irresponsible behavior that is unacceptable". "It was grossly irresponsible behavior that could have caused serious injury and death", he added. "We are investigating whether any Airbnb guests were involved and we will be suspending any guest accounts that appear to be connected to this incident".
