Darpan News Desk, 15 Jul, 2019
  • IIO Investigates VPD After Man Dies In Fall From West End Apartment

A distraught man, throwing large items out of a high-rise West End apartment, has fallen to his death.


Just after noon today, VPD responded to several calls regarding items such as TVs and bicycles being thrown out of an apartment window on Bidwell near Haro Street.


The items were thrown onto the street, from what officers determined was from a ninth story apartment window. This presented a dangerous situation for anyone walking by.


Officers quickly located and entered the apartment that the items were coming from and observed a man inside who appeared distraught.


The man fell from a window and died as a result. The IIO is now investigating.
