Manitoba RCMP Release

On May 12, 2018, at approximately 11:30 am, Lac du Bonnet RCMP responded to a call of a possible drowning in Nopiming Provincial Park.

Emergency Medical Services personnel were already on scene providing medical assistance to a three-year-old male child from Winnipeg when officers arrived at the Tulabi Falls Campground within the park. The child was later pronounced deceased.

The preliminary investigation has determined that the three-year-old child, who was camping in the area with family, was playing with a group of children in the campground when he wandered away. His absence was quickly noticed and he was found a short time later by family members in a nearby body of water. Family members provided medical assistance to the child until first responders arrived.

The death is not considered to be suspicious and the investigation is ongoing.
