One person is dead after a small explosion in the Eglinton Avenue and Caledonia Road area on Sunday morning.
Paramedics told 680 NEWS that a man in his 20s was climbing a hydro tower shortly after 6 a.m. when there was a flash and a small explosion.
The man fell to the ground and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Const. David Hopkinson says it’s unclear why the man climbed the tower and issued a safety warning for people to stay away from hydro towers.
“We see people climbing towers to take pictures and going to dangerous lengths for a short thrill. Its very dangerous activity and we discourage anyone from doing so.
Police say they will not be releasing the name of the victim.
