Yonge & Dundas blocked off, man hit by sign



http://www.pulse24.com/News/Top_Stor...5-014/page.asp

Toronto’s gusty winds may have helped send a man to hospital on Wednesday.

Police responded to the busy Yonge and Dundas area around 2:30pm, for reports a large sign may have fallen on someone.

When crews arrived they discovered a victim believed to be in his 20s had been seriously hurt by the unexpected blow from above.

Officials indicate the man was conscious and breathing when paramedics reached him, but the extent of his injuries remains unclear.

He was whisked off to a nearby emergency room for treatment.

It’s still not clear if the strong breezes contributed to the mishap or what kind of sign came down, but the location is a high traffic area for both pedestrians and cars, and is filled with dozens of advertising billboards and store identifiers trying to catch the eyes of passersby.

Preliminary reports suggest the marker that fell may have been attached to or posted near the Eaton Centre.

Fortunately, it doesn’t appear anyone else was hit.



It's 4:00 and it's still blocked off (looks like all of Yonge in front of the Eaton centre)
