A children's party in Brossard turned tragic Friday afternoon, when a 3-year-old boy was found unconscious at the bottom of a backyard pool.
The incident happened on Tardif St. at around 2:45 Friday afternoon.
Police officers and ambulance workers rushed to the scene, trying to revive the boy.
He was then rushed to Charles-Lemoyne hospital, where his death was confirmed.
The youngster is the second person to drown in a backyard pool in Brossard a 24-hour period. An 85-year-old man drowned in a backyard pool on Varin St. early Thursday evening.
It's unclear whether that man had any kind of medical condition.
