A teenager was rushed to hospital with suspected spinal injuries after a fall from a flat window.
The 19-year-old fell from the fourth floor of a property on Happyhillock Road, near the Longtown Street junction, at around 6.30pm on Thursday.
He was taken to Ninewells Hospital with suspected spinal injuries, which are not believed to be life-threatening.
Witnesses told of seeing paramedics running to the rear of the block – where the teen is said to have fallen – carrying a stretcher.
Police officers – who were already in the surrounding area attending a separate incident – were also called in.
One local resident said he had come out of his house to see the immediate aftermath of the incident.
“I came out of my home and there were paramedics running around the block,” he said.
“I couldn’t see exactly what had happened but they took a boy away on a stretcher.
“It was shocking to see.”
Another resident said: “There were police and an ambulance outside the property.
“It must have happened between 6.30pm-6.45pm.
“I had seen the ambulance flying down the road, then it pulled up outside the block.
“There were two ambulances there – one was at the front and the other was at the back. The paramedics ran up the side of the building with a stretcher.
“There were three police cars there too, they were all around the front of the building.”
A police spokesman said: “Police Scotland and the Scottish Ambulance Service attended Happyhillock Road at around 6.40pm on Thursday when a 19-year-old man fell from a fourth-floor window.
“He was taken by ambulance to Ninewells Hospital. His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.”
A spokesman for the Scottish Ambulance Service confirmed a crew had attended the incident.
He said: “One male patient was transported to Ninewells Hospital.”
