A 23-month-old boy taken to Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario after choking on food last week has died, the boy’s great-aunt has confirmed.


Emergency crews were called to the daycare in Masson-Angers on Friday morning, but responders and staff were unable to revive the child and he was taken to the nearby Buckingham Hospital, then to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, where he was placed on life support.


Gatineau police said investigations are automatic in the deaths of children under the age of six years but that there was no indication the death was anything other than accidental.


It was the second such choking death in a Gatineau daycare in nine months.


In May, a 13-month-old baby boy died after choking on food at an Aylmer daycare.
