Man rescued after getting stuck between 2 downtown buildings

NEWS STAFF | posted Wednesday, Jul 12th, 2017

Firefighters worked for hours to rescue a man who was stuck between two buildings in downtown Toronto on Tuesday night.

Emergency crews got a call around 8:15 p.m. about the incident on Sherbourne Street, just south of Queen.

Toronto Fire said the man had apparently fallen from a roof and got stuck between two buildings around 5 p.m., but the investigation is ongoing.

Firefighters broke through a thick brick wall to get to him and finally got him free around 11 p.m.

Paramedics took him to hospital, but it’s not clear how serious his injuries are.

Sherbourne was closed to traffic for the rescue, but has since reopened.
