A Twitter user filmed a Cubs fan performing a "trust fall" off the plinth of one of the 17-foot The Bowman and The Spearman statues at the mouth of Grant Park early Friday. (A trust fall is where a person falls backwards into a group of people with outstretched arms.)

The spectacle happened while thousands of fans were waiting at Grant Park for the Cubs victory rally to begin.
