Man seriously hurt in fall from King Street overpass at Kenilworth

A 57-year old Hamilton man has suffered serious injuries after falling from the King Street overpass at Kenilworth Avenue. The province’s Special Investigations Unit is investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident.

A preliminary SIU statement suggests the following:

At approximately 4 p.m. on New Year’s Day, Hamilton Police Service officers were called to the area of King Street East and Kenilworth Avenue South after receiving several 911 calls about a man threatening to jump off the bridge. Police say the man was using a walker.

Officers attempted to speak to the man and called the Mobile Crisis Rapid Response Team for assistance. Members from the team arrived but the man fell from the bridge. Paramedics were called and took the man to hospital where he remains.

The man has been apprehended under the Mental Health Act.

Three investigators have been assigned to the case.

The SIU is urging anyone who may have information about this investigation, including video or photos, to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529 or online at: https://siu.on.ca/en/appeals.php
