Baie-Saint-Paul snowmobile accident: injured child would be out of danger
The five-year-old child involved in the Baie-Saint-Paul snowmobile accident on Saturday would be “out of danger,” according to the Sûreté du Québec (SQ).
The child suffered serious injuries when the vehicle on which he was seated ran into a chalet. He had been in a critical summer since Saturday.
“We no longer fear for our lives. But when we talk about serious injuries to a child, we must understand that his state of health can change from one moment to the next, ”specifies SQ spokesperson Ann Mathieu.
An adult and a child were on the snowmobile at the time of the accident. The adult is said to have suffered minor injuries.
They were driving around chalet grounds, on a path near Boulevard Monseigneur-de-Laval. They were not on the public highway at the time of the impact.
In the coming days, SQ investigators will inspect the machine. There will also be an analysis of whether the accident was caused by the adult’s improper maneuver.
“The child could also have interfered in the driving of the vehicle, it sat at the front, between the arms of the driver”, notes the spokesperson.
