Three Children Died After Falling into Frozen Lake in England, Fourth Child Still Critical
Three out of four children in England have died in critical condition after falling into a frozen lake. The police reported this. The drama occurred on Sunday afternoon in Solihull, a town southeast of Birmingham.
Witnesses said the children were playing on the ice of a frozen lake when they fell into the water. The emergency facilities took the victims out of the icy water and instantly resuscitated them. They were taken to two different hospitals in Birmingham in critical condition.
The three fatalities were 8, 10 and 11 years old. The fourth boy, who is 6 years old, is still in severe condition at the hospital.
Investigators are still present at the drama scene to determine precisely what happened and whether anyone else may have fallen into the water.
The emergency services were notified around 2:30 pm local time on Sunday, reporting that four children had fallen through the ice.
Witnesses and police officers initially tried to get the children out of the water on their own, but it was a matter of waiting for divers from the fire brigade before they could be brought back to dry land.
