A 911 call was placed around 6:30pm today due to a child being found unresponsive in the home.
The south side home was responded to by Thunder Bay Police Service, Superior North EMS, and Thunder Bay Fire Rescue.
Paramedics worked dilligently on the child, but sources have told us the child was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.
A source has told TRCCTB that the child was found unresponsive from asphyxiation.
If a child is old enough to ask about suicide, then they're probably old enough for a discussion about it.
