Snowbank victim dies

WINNIPEG—A neighbour says a nine-year-old Winnipeg boy who became trapped in a fallen snowbank has died in hospital.
Cathy Kinsman said the boy was taken off a respirator Saturday—three days after he was pulled from the snow outside his suburban home.

Kinsman said the boy was playing last week when he somehow became buried.
Neighbours rushed to help, dug the unconscious boy out with their hands, and performed CPR until paramedics arrived.
