8:03am Wednesday 20th March 2013 in News
A SIX-year-old girl has died after she fell into a canal in Kidderminster.
Emergency services were called to the scene in Springfield Park just before 6.20pm yesterday following reports that three children had fallen into the canal.
It appears two of the children managed to get themselves out of the water but the third was in the water for some time before being rescued.
The three children were all taken to hospital but the six-year-old girl was pronounced dead a short time after arriving at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. The two other children are expected to make a full recovery.
