The Winnipeg Police Service has apologized for posting photos to social media of a person in distress.
The photo was of a man hanging from the Disreali Bridge on Feb. 23. The WPS, alongside the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service and the public, was able to perform a rescue operation.
"We recognize the insensitivity of posting these photos (and) the impact they may have. We apologize for including these photos," the WPS said in a written statement.
"We will be more mindful of what we share via social media."
