Ontario's police watchdog is investigating the death of a man in Niagara Falls, Ont., after the man and a police officer went over a retaining wall and into the Niagara Gorge.
The Special Investigations Unit says that shortly after 5 p.m. ET on Tuesday a Niagara Regional Police officer was chasing a man on River Road, between Otter and Eastwood streets, roughly three kilometres from the falls.
Shortly afterward, both people went over a wall and into the Niagara Gorge. The man who was being chased died.
