2 women, 1 child rushed to hospital in Etobicoke

News Staff | posted Thursday, Jun 13th, 2019

Three people, including a toddler, have been rushed to hospital in Etobicoke.

Emergency crews were called to a residential building near Lake Shore Boulevard and Long Branch Avenue just after 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.

“Once the uniform officers arrived on scene they were briefed by the paramedics and were advised that there were three occupants within one particular unit that were all in medical distress, showing the same symptoms,” Insp. Anthony Paoletta explained.

“The officers attended the unit with paramedics, first aid was initiated by the paramedics and they were all transported to local area hospitals where they are currently being examined by physicians.”

Police would not say what the two women and child were rushed to hospital for.

Paoletta said investigators will be going through the apartment to determine just what happened, as well as looking at security video and canvassing neighbours to see if there’s any information they could provide.

Police said this is not a criminal case at this time, but that it appears to involve a person in crisis. There is no concern for public safety.
