    In the style of Spiderman, a raccoon climbed up the wall of a high-rise near the Boardwalk in Ocean City, NJ. After making it about eight stories up, the critter falls off the wall, spreading its body like a parachute suit.

    The video, captured by South Carolina resident Micha Rea, shows dozens of spectators looking up mesmerized. Shock spreads through the crowd as the raccoon is seen pushing off the wall and falling to the ground.

    Although the impact from the fall looks hard, the animal immediately gets to its feet and runs away. 

    Raccoons have strong claws that allow them climb. In June, another daredevil critter climbed a 25-story office building in St. Paul, Minnesota, probably making MI’s Ethan Hunt envious.
