Girl in hospital after being found unconscious in pool at day camp Add to ...

A four-year-old girl is in hospital with life-threatening injuries after being pulled unconscious from a pool in Vaughan, Ont.

York Region police say the girl was at a private day camp being run at a large fitness centre when she was found by a staff member.

Sergeant Clint Whitney says CPR was immediately performed on the girl, who was pulled from the pool without any vital signs.

He says it seems the girl was underwater for one to two minutes.

Sgt. Whitney says the girl is still unconscious and in critical but stable condition, but is now breathing on her own.

He says officers are asking any witnesses to contact them as they try to figure out if there are grounds for a criminal investigation.

It’s unclear if there was a lifeguard or a supervisor around the pool at the time.

“She is breathing. She is holding on on her own right now,” Sgt. Whitney said.
