MIAMI – Dozens in Miami's Brickell area spotted a man hanging from the side of a skyscraper on Saturday. 

A black helicopter followed the black-clad man who was swinging back and forth from the Conrad Hotel, 1395 Brickell Ave. He was using his legs to push himself away from the 36-story glass building overlooking Biscayne Bay.

A hotel employee said the man was performing a stunt that was part of a movie scene. Nightclub owner Romain Zago couldn't believe his eyes. He saw the man from the neighboring Four Seasons Hotel & Private Residences. 

"When a window in your condo has that access to spoil you on the next Mission Impossible," Zago said on his Instagram post. "Things we see in Miami. Sorry Director, but I had to post."

Records show Swat L'Elite de la Police Americaine was among the many films and videos with an active permit for production in Miami.
