Passers-by said the man had been working to clean the windows above the ground floor canopy when his foot had broken the glass.

“The man had been cleaning windows when his leg went through the glass panel.” said North Sydney Police acting sergeant Scott Macgee who was at the scene. ``He received a cut to his leg and was taken to hospital.”

Workers in the Little Sushi Bar Tokyo sushi shop adjacent to the window said the man had put his weight on the panel to clean it when it broke under him.

“He jumped down slightly to clean the window and the window broke under him,” said assistant Alice Kim. “The man got stuck in the middle of the glass and was trying to get out of window and he cut himself.’’

He has been taken to Royal North Shore Hospital with minor injuries.
