THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  ~~~~~May 12, 2022 (LSNews)   On May 12,2022 @appx 12:45pm Thunder Bay Fire Rescue, responded to a water rescue call at McVicar Creek at the corner of Court St and McVicar St. under the bridge.

Reports were of a stroller with child in the river. Fire Crews found the stroller and immediately entered the water and located the victim. Due to the high volume of water flow, extrication required use of a rope system. Firefighters were able to overcome the turbulent water and retrieve the infant still strapped into the stroller. The victim was removed from the water and given to awaiting EMS crew. Fire and EMS provided emergency medical care and patient was transferred to TBRHSC. 

At this time the condition of the patient is unknown.
