South Carolina visitor Micha Rea caught the dramatic scene on video, WTXF reported. In the video, a crowd can be seen watching a raccoon climb approximately nine stories up an apartment building before the animal appears to deliberately leap off the building in dramatic fashion. The raccoon lands hard on the ground, but immediately runs off, seemingly unharmed.

Watch the video below, viewer discretion advised:

A young spectator told WTXF that it was like watching a "raccoon Spider-Man."

A local veterinarian who watched the video told WTXF the fact that the animal was able to run off is a good sign, but the raccoon could have suffered internal injuries.

Officials searched for the daredevil raccoon but could not locate it.
