Two-year-old drowns in Humberside garden pond

A two-year-old boy has died after falling into a garden pond. Police are treating the toddler's death as 'unexplained'.

Emergency services, including a local air ambulance, were called to the address in Woodmansey, near Beverley, East Yorkshire on Monday.

He was flown to nearby Hull Royal Infirmary but medics say he did not respond to treatment and died not long after entering the water.

A woman, aged 29, was arrested and questioned by police who arrived at the scene, but has now been released on bail.

A spokesman for Humberside Police said: "A two-year-old boy sadly died yesterday in Woodmansey, Beverley after falling in to a private pond and was unresponsive to treatment.

"The toddler was taken to Hull Royal Infirmary yesterday by air ambulance, but sadly died a short time later.

"A 29-year-old woman was arrested following the incident, however she has been released on police bail until the end of April.

"Specially trained police officers are with the little boy's family and are offering them support, during this terrible time."
