A young boy who drowns in a pool received CPR. A 4-year old boy drowned in a neighbor’s pool in Pierrefonds after his babysitter lost sight of him.
The Montreal police stated that a 26-year old woman watching over the boy and a young child noticed the 4-year old had vanished at 3:30 PM. She saw the boy’s clothes by a neighbor’s pool on Jacques Bizard Blvd. and called for help.
According to Constable Olivier Lapointe, the pool was not ready. The water was green and you cannot see if the child was inside.
The firefighters pulled the boy from the water and attempted CPR. He was quickly rushed to a healthcare facility where he was declared dead.
The police are still investigating and have not ruled if this was a case of negligence.
