Surveillance footage shows a child resembling Elijah Marsh, 3, leaving home. (Toronto Police)
A missing 3-year-old Canadian boy died Thursday after wandering into -4 degree Fahrenheit temperatures wearing nothing but a T-Shirt, diaper and boots, the Huffington Post reports.
The child, Elijah Marsh of Toronto, was pronounced dead at the city’s North York General Hospital shortly after police and volunteers located him about 10 a.m. huddled near an air conditioner just a few feet away from his family’s apartment, writes the news outlet. Surveillance footage shows a child resembling Elijah leaving home about 4:05 a.m, the Post says.
The incident began after his family put him to bed Wednesday and reportedly woke to find him missing about 7:30 a.m. Thursday, the report says. Neighbors from near and far joined police in the search for the child amid an intense cold snap in the city.
