Man dies in fall from overpass
SYDNEY, N.S. - Nova Scotia’s police watchdog is investigating the death of a 27-year-old man who fell from a highway overpass after officers arrived on scene to deal with a possible dispute.
A Serious Incident Response Team statement says police were called to an overpass over Highway 125 in Sydney at about 5 p.m. Thursday. The team says sometime after a Cape Breton Regional Police officer arrived and found two men on the overpass, one of them fell from the overpass onto the highway below.
The force contacted the team, which has sent three investigators to Sydney to look into the matter.
