Toronto police say a man has been rushed to hospital after he was reportedly electrocuted at a building in Bloor West Village.

It happened around 12:30 p.m. at Willard Avenue and Bloor Street West.

Police said the man, believed to be in his 20s, was working in a hydro vault at the time. He was trapped in the vault and unconscious when paramedics arrived.

Power in the area had to be knocked out so he could be safely extracted. He was then rushed to hospital with serious to life-threatening injuries.

The Ministry of Labour has been called to investigate.
