Preliminary information suggests the following:
  • In the evening hours of July 15, 2018, the London Police Service received a call regarding a woman in distress at an apartment building on Wonderland Road South.
  • Officers attended the apartment unit, and made attempts to negotiate with the woman.
  • Shortly after, the woman fell from the balcony to the ground below.
