Original story -- June 16

The Independent Investigations Office has been called to Kamloops after a man was seriously hurt when he jumped from a parkade at Royal Inland Hospital while police were dealing with him.

RCMP Cpl. Cheryl Bush says security staff at the hospital called officers just after 7 p.m. on Sunday because there was concern the man intended to jump from the building.

Members had arrived and were trying to coax the man to safety when he jumped.

Bush says the man is now being treated at the hospital.

She can't confirm his condition or if he was a patient at the hospital prior to the leap.
