A man has been rushed to the hospital after falling from a three-story building.
Police say that on Thursday, March 22, they were executing a search warrant in the Downtown Eastside, at a residence near East Hastings and Columbia Street.
During the search, a man in his 50s tried to flee by exiting out a third-story window.
He fell to the ground, however, and was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The Independent Investigations Office is investigating the circumstances leading up to the man’s injuries and the VPD’s property crime investigation is ongoing.
