Canada’s Voice – First responders are warning Calgarians to be safe on the water this long weekend after a five-year-old boy died after being pulled from a retention pond in Calgary’s northeast.
Emergency crews were notified a child was missing in community of Saddle Ridge near 88th Avenue and 60th Street N.E. around 4:30 p.m. Friday.
Police confirmed Saturday that the boy had died.
Friday afternoon, the boy was pulled from the water by a concerned resident who was out looking for the missing youngster. Officers on scene performed CPR before EMS arrived at the pond around 5:15 p.m.
Stuart Brideaux with AHS confirmed the boy was initially taken to the Peter Lougheed Centre in life-threatening condition after he was pulled from the pond.
This is the second Calgary child in under two weeks to die after falling into a body of water. Just last week, a toddler drowned in Lake Bonaventure in the southeast community of Lake Bonavista.
Calgary Fire Department Battalion Chief Harley Spate said kids need to wear life jackets when on or near bodies of water and warned parents to keep a close on children when playing near Calgary’s lakes, rivers and ponds.
“Remember to always keep toddlers or young children within arm’s reach while in or around all bodies of water,” reads a statement on the city’s water safety web page. “Lifejackets are critical for children and inexperienced swimmers.”
