Man dies after being «pushed» stairs

MISE À DAY

A man in his 30s reportedly died after being “pushed” down the stairs on Sunday afternoon in southwest Montreal.

Sunday, around 12:30 p.m., police were called to a residence on Ash Street, located in the southwest of Montreal. Once on the scene, they were able to locate the victim and immediately undertook resuscitation maneuvers. The victim, a man in his thirties, nevertheless succumbed to his injuries.

“The thesis of murder is considered, but not confirmed,” said Véronique Comtois, spokesperson for the Police Department of the City of Montreal (SPVM).

For the moment, we still do not know who would have “pushed” the victim, if this is the case. An investigation is underway to determine the circumstances of the incident.

More details to come.
