3-year-old dies at Tim Horton's after falling into grease trap

Rochester N.Y

The city is now pouring concrete around the opening in the ground where the grease trap was located and putting a metal lid on it, according to Camp.

The child fell into the trap and was not able to escape. The witness saw the boy and pulled him from the trap and started administering CPR, Camp said. But attempts to revive the boy proved fruitless and he was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

"It's a disgusting, tragic accident, misadventure- whatever you call it- just a horrifying situation", Camp said.

Choking back tears, Rochester Police investigator Francis Camp said the accident was a 'horrible, frightful unimaginable, unspeakable tragedy'.

"We have a horrifying episode here that happened today", he said.

"No one ever wants to see anything like this", Camp said, saying it is the "number one" worst thing his officers ever have to deal with.

The statement said the company was cooperating with authorities and would not have any further comment as police investigate.

The child's mother had called 911 at 10:56 a.m.to report him missing, Rochester Police investigator Frank Camp told reporters during a news conference Monday.

Sadie Grace Andrews was playing with her siblings outside an ice cream parlor in Auburn when she stepped on the unsecured lid of a trap.

Alabama politicians passed legislation requiring more secure covers after a three-year-old girl died in a 1.8-meter-deep grease trap in Alabama, in October 2017.

The investigation is ongoing. It is flush to the ground, similar to a manhole, but has a plastic lid.

"What occurred today was a tragedy and on behalf of the Tim Hortons family, we offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the young boy who passed away". It was slated to be permanently sealed on Monday.
