Labour inquiry into how kid got buried in snow

Durham Regional Police Service (DRPS) yesterday informed that a 12-year-old boy, who was accidentally buried in snow, has been transported from a local hospital to a trauma centre in Toronto.

It said the Ministry of Labour was on the scene at the Julie Payette Public School on Garden Street in Whitby, investigating the incident.

It is reported that two children were covered in a snow clearing operation at a neighbouring property by a snow plow.

DRPS earlier said members of Central West Division responded to Julie Payette Public School after two school children were injured on the property. Parents of the involved victims have been notified. One child was transported to a local hospital.

“Children should stay away from working snow plows. Snow plow drivers cannot see kids if they are playing in ditches, near the side of the road, or in snow piled in the centre of cul-de-sacs. Plows push heavy snow and pose a hazard. Stay safe and keep kids away,” tweeted Clarington Municipality.
