This NYPD cop stepped up to the crate.
Video being shared on social media shows a police officer attempting to complete the viral “Milk Crate Challenge” in the Big Apple on Monday.
The cop was filmed making it to the top of a rickety mound of crates stacked in a staircase formation.
He made it most of the way down — before he took a spill.
A crowd surrounded the officer, screaming in surprise and holding out their phones to capture the attempted feat.
It wasn’t immediately clear when or where the clip was filmed.
“We encourage all our officers to engage the community in a positive and proactive manner,” the NYPD said in a statement in response to the video.
The wipeout-inducing stunt appears to have started on TikTok, where it has racked up more than 15.3 million collective views.
Medical experts have warned against partaking in the udderly bonkers trend.
“The Milk Crate Challenge is very dangerous, and we are seeing many orthopedic injuries as a result of the falls,” Dr. Shawn Anthony, an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, told the “Today” show. “Injuries can include broken wrists, shoulder dislocations, ACL and meniscus tears, as well as life-threatening conditions like spinal cord injuries.”
