WA Police are investigating after a man, who later died, stopped breathing while police officers were removing him from Ballajura home.
On Monday a police spokeswoman said the 34-year-old man had died in hospital overnight.
Just after 6am on Friday, June 29 police were called to an incident at a residence in Yosemite Loop.
St John Ambulance said that they had also been called to the same address.
A police spokesman said upon arrival the police officers located a man inside the residence.
“Due to the man’s erratic behaviour he was being removed from the residence when for an unknown reason he stopped breathing,’’ he said.
“The police officers immediately provided emergency first aid, performing CPR on the man until the arrival of St John Ambulance personnel.’’
The man was taken to Royal Perth Hospital in a critical condition.
The incident is being investigated as a critical incident and is being overseen by the homicide squad and internal affairs Unit.
