Authorities say three people, including one child, have been rushed to hospital after an incident in Etobicoke on Wednesday morning.

Toronto paramedics confirmed they were called to a residential building in the area of Brown’s Line and Lake Shore Boulevard West just after 9:30 a.m.

Toronto police Insp. Anthony Paoletta told reporters that paramedics provided first aid to two women and a child “under the age of three” inside of a unit in the building before they were brought to hospital.

Toronto paramedics told Global News the three people transported from the location were in serious condition, though police later said all three were conscious and breathing.

There is no word on what caused their injuries.

“Currently, the Toronto police are here on scene in an effort to try and determine what actually caused the injuries,” Paoletta said.

Earlier in the day, police said the incident may have involved a “person in crisis.”

“There is very limited information or evidence that would suggest weapons were involved,” Paoletta said. “There is obviously nothing at this point in time that is telling us foul play is an issue here. Obviously, we’re going to determine that.”

Investigators were seen inside of this apartment at 230 Lake Promenade.

Paoletta added that there were no concerns with regards to air quality for other residents inside of the building and in the surrounding area.

Police did not comment on the nature of the relationship between the three injured and did not provide the ages of the two women or the gender of the child.

The Toronto police forensics unit arrived on scene in the early afternoon.
