A local police officer who was injured in a training accident Wednesday has been released from hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
The officer was rappelling in the River Run Centre Wednesday morning as part of training for the Guelph Police Service’s tactical unit, when he fell about 40 feet. He was taken to hospital in Hamilton as a precaution, a news release said.
The officer sustained a non-critical injury to his upper back and the prognosis is positive that he will make a full recovery, a release said.
To respect the officer’s personal privacy, no further details of his injury will be released, it said.
The Ministry of Labour and the Guelph Police Service are continuing to investigate the cause of the incident.
