A video has emerged on Twitter showing the moment when a male falls from a roof after allegedly trying to run away from the police in Walsall yesterday, 22nd July.
It is not clear at this time why the police were trying to detain the male.
In the video posted to Twitter, a male wearing dark clothing can be seen to edge his way down a slate tiled roof.
However, the tiles appear to give way underneath the male before he falls – feet first – to the ground, narrowly missing a PCSO who appeared to be trying to find the male.
After a few seconds, officers gather around the male to give him first aid before requesting an emergency ambulance. A short while later, the male can be seen getting back up again.
It would appear that at least five officers were trying to detain the male before he fell.
