**CORRECTION: Fire officials said the man sustained life-threatening injuries, however at a press conference Wednesday evening the mayor and fire chief said they couldn't confirm his death.


A man was hit by falling ice in Baltimore Monday, fire officials say.

Around 1:35 p.m. emergency units were called to the 600 block of President Street.

The man, who is listed as a John Doe of an unknown age, sustained life-threatening injuries when ice fell from a building, according to the Baltimore City Fire Department.

He was taken to Johns Hopkins hospital.
