Police say a 49-year-old man has died after being hit by a tour bus in downtown Vancouver Sunday.

The incident happened just before 10 a.m. local time near Canada Place, a venue where visitors board free shuttles to local landmarks. Witnesses told CTV that the pedestrians were loading or unloading their luggage from the vehicle when they were hit. First responders used wood to rescue another man who was also trapped. First responders retrieved him from under the bus, and were seen performing CPR on him before he was taken to hospital.
