Child injured at daycare after a part of ceiling collapses


A child has sustained some minor injuries at daycare as a part of a ceiling collapse in the city’s Roncesvalles Village neighbourhood.

Emergency responders were called at arround 1:30 p.m to the daycare in the area of Dundas Street West, north of Boustead Avenue, near Roncesvalles Avenue.

“When the crews had arrived they realized there was a daycare. There was children in there,”said Toronto Fire Platoon Chief John D’Aloisio.

Twenty-one children and nine staff were evacuated from the building. Toronto police said the one child was taken to the hospital for treatment. All of the children have been picked up by their parents, D’Aloisio said.

According to the report authorities said that a building inspector has been called in to investigate the incident.

“It appears, just from the quick glance and we haven’t done a full investigation just yet, but it seems to be some plaster and some ceiling tiles came down,” D’Aloisio said.
