    those are not to high

    I came across the following sentence. A non-native speaker uttered it so I'm unsure of its correctness.

    I enjoy jumping out of windows, providing those are not situated too high.

    Is the use of "those" here natural? I would use "they" instead of "those". What do you think?
    Please note that I'm not a teacher.

    I agree with you. 'Those' is not natural.
