A teenage student has suffered critical injuries after being injured in a fall at a school in The Annex.

Police were called to University of Toronto Schools on Bloor Street near Spadina Avenue just after 12 p.m. on Wednesday.

School principal Dr. Leanne Foster confirmed a student was seriously injured during the lunch hour in a letter sent to families of students at the school.

The circumstances of how the 17-year-old fell are still unknown but police tell CityNews the incident does not appear to be suspicious or criminal in nature, however, an investigation is continuing. It’s believed the boy fell approximately 40 feet to the ground.

Paramedics transported the boy to a trauma centre with life-threatening injuries.

“We know that this will be upsetting news for many of our students and their families. Supports will be accessible as needed, from our social workers, student services team and school nurse,” read a portion of the letter from Foster.

University of Toronto Schools is an independent secondary day school affiliated with the University of Toronto which follows a specialized academic curriculum.
