Sydney toddler drowns in backyard pond

A three-year-old boy from Sydney’s north died last night after falling into a pond.

His parents thought the boy was playing in their backyard on Chiltern Road, Ingleside, but he had wandered into a neighbour’s property without them realising.

His father found him in the pond at around 3pm yesterday. Paramedics were called and he was taken to Sydney Children’s Hospital at Randwick but tragically died there.

Police are investigating and a report will be prepared for the coroner.
