Ponoka RCMP are on scene today at an abandoned building where an injured person was found.

The call came to emergency crews some time after 3 p.m. with EMS, Ponoka RCMP and members of the Ponoka Fire Department attending the scene.

The man was taken by EMS crews to the Ponoka Hospital and Care Centre and then shortly after that STARS Air Ambulance was dispatched to Ponoka. The man was transported to an Edmonton hospital and is believed to be in critical but stable condition.

As a precautionary measure the area around the building was marked off with police tape as investigators checked on the building for any other individuals.
