2 more children have drowned in the family pool on Thursday.
According to CTV News, a 2 year old boy was found lifeless in a family pool in Ste-Anne-des-Plaines. This happened a mere 2 hours after another child was found at the bottom of the family pool in St-Remi. Both deaths happened in above ground pools.
Adults on the scene in Ste-Anne-des-Plaines tried to resuscitate the child with CPR. Their efforts failed and the child was pronounced dead in hospital at 4:45p.m.
The two drownings are the 43rd and 44th in Quebec this year which is well above last year’s rate.
