Caleb Tubila Njoko died falling from a London, Ont., balcony. His mother had called police for help

As tensions mount in Toronto surrounding the circumstances of a young black woman's fall from a balcony, Ontario's police watchdog is investigating the death of a young black man in London, Ont., who also fell from a highrise after police were called to help.

Caleb Tubila Njoko, 27, died May 8, three days after he fell from the balcony of his mother's home at 85 Walnut Street.

His mother, Nelly Wendo, had called police when she worried his behaviour was growing more erratic after days of not sleeping and painful injuries sustained following an arrest on April 28. .

"I called 9-1-1 for my son's mental health, to go to the hospital for help" Wendo told CBC News in her native French.
