Kelowna RCMP investigate sudden death of infant child


KELOWNA  – Ambulance paramedics rushed to a Kelowna home Wednesday morning for a medical call that turned tragic.

Police and fire-fighters also attended the house on Dubbin Road in the Mckinley Landing neighbourhood on the northern outskirts of the city.

Inside the home was a two month old infant who was not breathing and had no pulse.

“That infant was taken to Kelowna General Hospital and unfortunately was not able to be resuscitated. The coroner has been called and an investigation is currently underway,” says RCMP spokesperson Cst. Kris Clark.

An autopsy will likely be performed to try to determine the cause of death.

As with most sudden death incidents, RCMP say they are treating it as suspicious until proven otherwise.
