A 21-year-old man is in hospital in critical condition after being at the bottom of a swimming pool in the borough of Anjou, in Montreal, early Monday.
The police were called around 3:35 a.m. about a possible drowning in a municipal swimming pool located near the intersection of boulevard Châteauneuf and avenue Randeau.
Once on the scene, the police had to jump into the water to rescue the victim and practice long resuscitation maneuvers on her.
The young man was transported to a hospital in critical condition, said Mariane Allaire Morin of the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM).
“We currently fear for his life,” said the SPVM spokesperson, adding that the investigation is underway into the circumstances surrounding this event.
The scene was also protected by a security perimeter to allow investigators dispatched to the scene to analyze it.
