A two-year-old girl has died in Langley after she was found in a pond near her home.
The girl was last seen yesterday afternoon near the family’s 5-acre lot, she was apparently with other kids when she disappeared.
Langley RCMP Sergeant Gary Huziak says a search party began after receiving the call she was missing.
“The property itself had a pond located on it, and unfortunately within that pond when the water was drained from it, the child was located inside the pond. Emergency services personnel attempted to resuscitate her but were not successful in their attempts.”
She was taken to Vancouver’s Children hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Huziak says the investigation is still open.
