A children’s party took a very bad turn, Sunday afternoon, in the municipality of Val-des-Monts, in the Outaouais.
Around 13 h 20, a three year old boy was found unconscious in an above ground pool located at the rear of a residence.
He was first taken to the Gatineau Hospital and then was transferred to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.
His condition was deemed critical but stable in the early evening on Sunday.
A lack of attention of people attending the festival is one of the hypotheses being studied by investigators, according to Sergeant Daniel Parizeau, Public Safety of the MRC des Collines.
