Apparently the man at the Eaton Centre jumped from the 2nd floor. Just saw him on a gurney alive but in rough shape. Tragic. They should really make the guard rails a bit higher. pic.twitter.com/SlEjqrKFLq

Back in 2017, a 34-year-old construction worker fell to his death at the Eaton Centre while installing stairs. Another worker who fell at the same time only suffered minor injuries.
