Two-year-old girl drowns in family pool in St. Remi
Yet another reminder of how important it is to watch over your kids around water.
Marylou Rondeau, a two-year-old girl, drowned Thursday afternoon in the community of St. Remi, south of Montreal.
Provincial police say the pool in question was fenced in, but that the child had been left unattended for a few moments.
She was rushed to Anna-Laberge hospital in Chateauguay after going into cardiac arrest. The little girl was pronounced dead at around 1:30 p.m.
A total of 43 people have drowned in Quebec pools and waterways this year.
