A person fell to their death this morning at about 10 a.m. in front of the Bayside Park Assisted Living Facility at 40th & Horton. The name of the deceased is not being released pending notification of their next of kin.
Officers from the EPD as well as Emergency Medical professionals from the Alameda County Fire Department and Paramedics responded to a report of a “person on the roof”. Just prior to the arrival of emergency personnel, the subject fell from the roof landing onto the sidewalk below.
Emergency Medical Personnel provided immediate aid, but the victim succumbed to their injuries while on the scene. Several officers and Emergency personnel blanketed the scene and used a blue tarp to cover the deceased while officers investigated the scene.
The Alameda County Coroner’s Office then responded and took possession of the deceased.
The EPD was not specific if this was being investigated as an accident or a suicide but noted “there does not appear to be any suspicious circumstances associated with this incident.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Emeryville Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Section at (510) 596-3700.
