Arrest over men's canal plunge in Dale Street, Manchester

A teenager has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after two men fell into a Manchester canal.

One man, 25, is critically ill in Manchester Royal Infirmary after he was pulled out of the canal by the emergency services on Sunday evening.

A second man managed to pull himself out of the canal, in Dale Street in the city's Northern Quarter, himself and ran away.

He then collapsed and was then taken to hospital where he was later discharged.

The 17-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of attempted robbery and attempted murder.
