A man has died in an industrial accident that is now under investigation by the Ministry of Labour.

Emergency responders were called to a scene behind a townhouse unit on Hedge End Road, in the Sheppard Avenue East and Meadowvale Road area, at about 5:15 p.m.

Paramedics had said the electrocution involved a 35-year-old man.

Toronto police later reported that the man had died.

Police say it is believed the man may have come into contact with wires while working on a house in the area.
