Toddler Pulled From Pond Improving

The condition of a toddler pulled from a pond in east London over the weekend is slowly improving.

On Friday, the 3-year-old was found in a pond near Hamilton Rd, just east of Veterans Memorial Pkwy. He was rushed to hospital in critical condition.

London police now say the child’s condition in Children’s Hospital has been updated to “fair”. A police spokesperson says that means his vital signs are stable, he is awake and comfortable and indicators are favourable.

Police are finished with an investigation into the accident. No foul play is suspected.
