A man has been seriously injured in Liverpool after falling from a flat block.

According to an eyewitness, he was sitting in a third-story window and “slipped.”

The victim was taken to hospital from Falkner Square in Toxteth around 4.10pm today.

Locals were “shocked” by the incident at the building where many students are said to live.

An anonymous witness told the Liverpool Echo: “He was sat up there [the back of the building] in his window, I’ve seen people living there – usually to have a smoke. Then it looked like he slipped and just fell.

“I heard some commotion over there after it happened and there were quite a few people there, one was on the phone to the ambulance I think. Emergency services were here within minutes.”

One man said he initially believed the crime scene had been put together by a film crew since they were there earlier in the week.

Another local woman described the case as “terrible” and wished the man a speedy recovery.

Merseyside Police said a cordon remains in place, with streets including Sandon Street and Lowther Street taped off.

A statement from Merseyside Police said: “At around 4.10pm we were called to Falkner Square to report that a man had fallen from a flat. The man was seriously injured and was taken to the hospital.

“A cordon remains in place and on-site investigations are ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact @MerPolCC at reference 644.’
