Cancun police officer hospitalized after falling from moving unit

Cancun, Q.R. — A police officer of the Municipal Secretariat of Public Security was rushed to hospital after falling from the back of a moving patrol unit.

The accident happened when Cancun police responded to a neighborhood disturbance call of intoxicated people on a public roadway. After arriving and arresting those involved in the complaint, the police unit began to head out when the driver made a sudden change in direction that caused one officer to fall from the back of the patrol.

Neighbors who saw what happened called for an ambulance since the officer fell to the concrete, hitting his head. There is no word on the condition of the Cancun police officer.
