Attempted murder-suicide in Laval?
Police in Laval have opened an investigation after receiving an early morning 9-1-1 call from a man, who told them he found his wife and 7-year-old girl in bed together, unconscious.
Police got the call just before 7 a.m. from the family's home on De Verone St.
The woman had apparently tried to commit suicide through a drug overdose, and remains in critical condition in hospital.
The 7-year-old daughter apparently took some of the pills as well. She was taken to Ste-Justine hospital in critical condition, but her condition has since stabilized and is said to be out of danger.
There were three other boys in the house. They were not hurt.
The father was also treated for shock. Police are looking to interview him to get a sense of what the mother's mental state was like.
