Two people have been arrested after an investigation into what police call a “sudden death” was launched two weeks after an incident May 11 at Toronto General Hospital.

TGH security guards had a “physical interaction” with a patient, who went into medical distress during the incident, police said in a news released today.

But it was at Toronto Western Hospital on May 27 that the 43-year-old patient was pronounced dead, and the investigation began the next day, according to the police chronology.
