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

The crash happened at the foot of Burrard Street near the waterfront, just outside Canada Place, around 10:30 a.m. "Several pedestrians around the parked vehicle were also hit by the bus". Responders were seen performing CPR on him before he was taken to hospital.

Sgt. Jason Robillard said that a 15-year-old girl remains in hospital with minor injuries and an elderly man is still in serious condition.

The protests were between white nationalists, who were protesting the removal of a statue of Civil War Confederate general Robert E.

Firefighters and paramedics attended the scene.

Everyone on the bus stayed put while responders rescued the three trapped people. "And I saw all the excitement", said a man who was at Canada Place with his grandchildren. The side of the bus said it was the free shuttle to the Capilano Suspension Bridge.

"It's with deep regret we confirm that one of our tourist buses was involved in a tragic accident in Vancouver this morning", general manager Stuart Coventry said in a statement.
