A Toronto police officer has been taken to hospital with a foot injury after being struck by a falling chunk of ice in the city’s downtown core.

The officer was outside a hostel near Spadina Avenue and King Street when the ice fell and struck his right foot at around 12:50 p.m.

According to Const. Wendy Drummond, the officer initially thought somebody had thrown something at him, but soon realized it was in fact falling ice.

His injuries are not believed to be serious.
