* Police have confirmed that a cyclist fell into the docks outside the M Shed at 7.05am this morning.
A spokesperson said two members of the public entered the water and rescued the man before paramedics arrived.
* Witnesses are being urged to come forward in helping police ascertain exactly what happened.
Paramedics have been fighting this morning to save the life of a man who was found in the docks.
Emergency services were called shortly after 7am after reports of a man in his 50s face down in the water outside the M shed.
It appeared that he had come off his bike.
Before police and paramedics arrived a member of the public had gone into the water to support the man.
Paramedics commenced CPR on the man, who had gone into cardiac arrest, and the person who had jumped into the water to help him was taken to the BRI as a precaution.
There are no further updates as to the man's condition at this stage.
