Today A 2-year-old child drowned after falling in the family swimming pool in the village of Griselles (Oliver). The little boy was found unconscious in the water by his relatives on Tuesday, Montargis public prosecutor Loïc Abrial announced.
It was the victim’s brother and sister, aged 5 and 7, who found him in the swimming pool. On Wednesday, the prosecutor stated, “The emergency personnel practiced first aid and restarted the heart.”
“The child was evacuated. In the evening, he had another cardiopulmonary arrest in hospital and died. ”
The family reported to authorities in March
An investigation was opened to determine more precisely the causes of death and the circumstances of the drowning. The investigations were entrusted to the Montargis research brigade. An autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday.
The boy’s family was being assessed by the services of the Loiret County Council. This procedure was ordered after a report from the gendarmerie on March 19. The soldiers, alerted by the town hall, intervened because one of the siblings had been seen “unsupervised”, according to the prosecution.
