A construction fence fell down on a man while he was trying to protect his child in downtown Toronto on Sunday afternoon, according to police.

Cst. Jen Sidhu, spokesperson for Toronto police, said a call came in around 12:20 p.m. after the fence fell on the man in the Elm Street and University Avenue area. The fence was not secure because it wasn’t being held down by a sand bag.

Sidhu said the father suffered minor injuries, like cuts and bruises, but his child -- a Sick Kids patient -- was unharmed.

Initially, Sidhu said, police were investigating, but Sick Kids security has taken over and are doing the paperwork.
