OAKVILLE, Ont. — Police say a 3-year-old boy has died after being pulled from a backyard pool during a party in Oakville, Ont.
Halton Regional Police say they were called to an address near Speers Road and Third Line after 7 p.m. on Saturday after the child was pulled from the pool without vital signs.
They say several adults and children were gathered at a private residence when the preschooler went underwater without detection for an undetermined amount of time.
