For the third time in the past 30 days, there has been a sudden death in Memorial Park, the downtown park that’s the site of a growing homeless encampment.
When driving down Brady Street at approximately 4:15 p.m. Wednesday, a Sudbury.com reporter observed CPR being performed on an individual in Memorial Park, in full view of traffic. Paramedics had arrived on site.
A written statement from Greater Sudbury Police said police were called in relation to a sudden death around 4:45 p.m., after paramedics responded to a call in Memorial Park.
The statement said paramedics had transported a 22-year-old man to hospital, while providing life-saving measures. However, the man was unfortunately pronounced deceased in hospital, said police.
GSPS said that as this is a sudden death investigation, they are working in collaboration with the Coroner’s Office. A post mortem will be conducted by the coroner in order to assist in determining a cause of death.
At this time, foul play is not suspected, say police.
