The county police watchdog is investigating a man who was seriously injured when officers from the Waterloo regional police answered an emergency call in Ayr on Wednesday afternoon.
A spokesman for the Special Investigations Unit told Global News in an email that the Waterloo Regional Police Department was called to an apartment building on Northumberland Street around 2:30 p.m.
They say Waterloo officers arrived at the residence before the man fell from a second-floor balcony and landed on the ground below.
The SIU says the man was then transported by ambulance to a hospital in the area, where he is in stable condition.
The SIU is an independent agency that investigates incidents involving the police that have resulted in death, serious injury or alleged sexual assault.
