EDMONTON — Alberta RCMP is investigating after a four-year-old girl died after an accident in Maskwacis.

The girl was recently brought to Edmonton after she was injured while playing outside with other children in Maskwacis, formerly known as Hobbema, said Sgt. Josée Valiquette.

She said the RCMP stepped in because of the seriousness of the girl’s injuries. The girl died in Edmonton Saturday.

Alberta Human Services, which oversees social-based services such as foster care, family care and child support services, has confirmed the child was receiving its services.
