Police and EMS in the city two hours south of Calgary were called to a home where a six-year-old girl was found in a dugout. The youngster was rushed to Chinook Regional Hospital, however despite efforts by family and first responders the unidentified girl died.
An autopsy is slated for Tuesday morning in Calgary though police don’t believe the girl’s death is suspicious.
About an hour earlier in Park Lake provincial park, just north of Lethbridge, an 18-year-old man was rescued from a near drowning after bystanders pulled him from the water and began CPR.
He is now recovering at Foothills hospital in Calgary.
