One person is dead and another sustained life-threatening injuries in a Toronto swing stage collapse in the Bloor and Keele streets area.

One person was pronounced dead after reportedly falling five storeys, paramedics told CBC News. That person was initially trapped when the swing stage — a scaffolding suspended in the air by two wires usually used for high-rise construction or window washing — collapsed to the ground.

Another patient has been transported to a trauma centre with life-threatening injuries.

Officials say they are still looking for more potential casualties.
