An eight-month-old boy who had been living in Williams Lake died in Kelowna on Monday morning.

He was staying in a motel with his family when he began having difficulties breathing.

When the family contacted BC Ambulance, the call was also referred to the Kelowna RCMP.

“At about quarter to 10 in the morning we received the report. When we arrived both the ambulance and fire department were on scene and had commenced life-saving efforts, but when the boy was transferred to hospital he could not be revived,” says Kelowna RCMP Cst. Kris Clark, adding the infant’s death is not considered suspicious.

“It will be up to the coroner. The autopsy may show more, but right now we have no cause for suspicion,” Clark says.
