BURLINGTON, ON.  There is nothing faster or more substantive than social media or a news source that uses the internet.

The Burlington Gazette picked up a news release from Halton Regional Police that reported a man found on Walkers Line who appeared to be seriously disoriented and injured.  The individual was taken to Joseph Brant Hospital.

Are these the kind of injury that result from minor medical event?

A photograph was provided which we published.  The news story was added to our Facebook page – and then it just took off. Thousand of people saw the news  story and passed it on.

By mid afternoon the police had identified the individual and reported their “investigation revealed he sustained minor injury during a medical event and there is no foul play suspected.”  The name of the victim was not being released.
