A shocking sight Tuesday morning as a man parachuted off the CN Tower.

Pan Am Games spokesperson Teddy Katz told 680 NEWS the spectacle was related to this summer’s Pan Am and Parapan Am Games.

“We were doing some filming for some promotional videos for the upcoming Toronto 2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games,” he explained.

Katz wouldn’t go into further detail on the stunt but said “you have to stay tuned.”

Those who saw the incident took to Twitter to express their shock.

Some 6,600 athletes from 41 countries will compete in 36 Pan Am sports plus 15 Parapan Am sports.

The Pan Am Games run from July 10 to 26, with the Parapan Am Games to follow Aug. 7-15.
