PICKERING, Ont. — Police say a woman drowned at Frenchmen’s Bay in Pickering, Ont., yesterday while trying to rescue her six-year-old son from choppy waters.
They say the child was on a flotation device, but his mother feared he’d strayed too far from shore and went in the water to get him.
The woman, who was in her thirties, was later pulled from the water without vital signs.
Paramedics performed CPR and the woman was then rushed to hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Police say her son was not injured.
