Jasper Place Transit Centre surrounded by police tape after stabbing incident

The quick delivery of CPR during emergencies is vital to improving the chances of survival. CPR was performed on a man who was involved in a stabbing incident. A 32-year-old man was transported to a hospital with life-threatening injuries after police were called to a weapons complaint in west Edmonton.

At around 2:45, the Edmonton Police Service stated officers were called to a weapons complaint at a business in the area of 157 Street and Stony Plain Road.

A man sustained the stab wounds during a physical altercation nearby and attended the business seeking medical attention.

The police performed CPR on the man until the arrival of EMS. The man was taken to the hospital with what police shared were life-threatening injuries. He remained in the hospital later Wednesday afternoon in stable condition.

The police did not state exactly where the stabbing ordeal took place, but the Jasper Place Transit Centre was cordoned off by police tape and shut down on Wednesday afternoon. Transit inspectors were on-site to help passengers make their way to temporary bus stops nearby.
