A two-year-old child who was airlifted to hospital following a single-vehicle crash in Langley remains in critical condition, RCMP say.

Emergency crews were called to the 21900 block of 56 Avenue on June 23 around 8:45 p.m. after police describe a vehicle drifting off the road and into a ditch, striking a culvert.

The vehicle was occupied by the driver, a 19-year-old woman, and a two-year-old boy, who police say, was not wearing a seatbelt.

Firefighters first on scene discovered the child without a pulse. They extricated the boy while beginning CPR in the vehicle.

The young patient was transported to the Langley airport and then airlifted to BC Children’s Hospital, where he currently remains.

“The child is still in critical condition,” Cpl. Holly Largy told the Langley Advance Times.

“The woman was released from hospital the same day as the collision.”

RCMP do not believe speed or alcohol to be a factor. The investigation is ongoing.
