I can verify there is lots of snow here today. The most in a great many winters.
Be careful in snowbanks – that is a good message.
Does that make this story true, and if not, a noble lie?
A nine-year-old boy has died after he was found on Wednesday trapped under a collapsed snow bank.
OPP Const. Paul Nancekivell says a family member discovered the boy and dragged him out from a snow bank near the family’s farm in Amaranth Township, about 82 kilometres north of Toronto.
Emergency crews quickly transported him to a nearby Orangeville hospital, Headwaters Health Care Centre, at around 3:30 p.m.
Const. Nancekivell said that boy died from his injuries in hospital.
Const. Nancekivell said that the Dufferin OPP is conducting an ongoing investigation.
“We’re releasing very few details until we’ve had a chance to really do a thorough and methodical investigation of this situation,” he says, “so hopefully we can bring the family some comfort in figuring out what happened.”
