— Two people have suffered minor injuries after glass fell from a downtown hotel.

Police say the glass fell from the penthouse of the Four Seasons Hotel. Paramedics say they have treated a man and a woman for minor injuries in and around their eyes.

The hotel confirmed the glass fell onto Yorkville Ave. and Bay St.from “a south facing window atop the building of the west tower of Four Seasons Residences” at about 1.15 p.m.

“The local authorities were immediately notified and are currently removing the remainder of the glass and cleaning the residual debris,” the hotel said in a statement shared with CP24.

There have been similar incidents in Toronto, with another person receiving a cut on her arm in mid-April from falling glass.

A spate of exploding glass in Toronto in 2011 led the province to amend its building code for balconies for new constructions to use stronger glass.
