  • Print

ONE of two young girls rushed to hospital after falling through ice near Red Deer, Alta., on Friday has died, according to a report from CTV Edmonton.

She was the younger of two sisters aged three and five who had been rushed to hospital in Edmonton, where they were last reported in critical condition.

Staff at Stollery Children's Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta Health Services and police declined to confirm the girl's death.

RCMP said Saturday they will not provide any more updates on the conditions of the girls and will leave it to family to disclose new details.

The girls fell through the ice Friday morning and were submerged in the 11/2-metre-deep water. They were rescued by family and rushed to hospital first in Red Deer and then to Edmonton.

Penhold Mayor Dennis Cooper said the community's thoughts and prayers are with the family.
