- Star wire services

The province’s police watchdog is reviewing how the OPP handled the death of a man in the Lake Huron town of Grand Bend this weekend.

The Special Investigat­ions Unit said officers drove a 52-year-old man home from a bar and restaurant early Sunday morning. The man went into medical distress and was pronounced dead. An autopsy will be carried out Monday.

The civilian watchdog is automatica­lly called in whenever police are involved in a situation that results in death or serious injury.
