A man who died in Clearbrook was given CPR. The investigators with the B.C.’s independent police watchdog stated that the Abbotsford officers had nothing to do with the death of a man involved in a fight at a Clearbrook business.
Immediate action to save a life
The members of the Independent Investigations Office released jurisdiction of the case after being called to the scene.
A ruling from the office finds no link or connection between the action or inaction of the police and the death of the 54-year old victim.
The Abbotsford officers responded to the site around evening after reports of a fight. The victim was found unconscious without a pulse. The police delivered CPR until the paramedics arrived and took over the resuscitation efforts.
The unidentified man shortly died after in a healthcare facility and the IIO was called since it must carefully assess all cases of police-involved death or serious injury in British Columbia.
