Toddler drowns in ditch
The boy, 3, fell into the rain-filled channel after wandering onto a farm construction site.
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Reporter
Innerkip -- A three-year-old boy drowned Thursday night after he fell into a water-filled ditch on a farm near here.
Isaac FRIESSEN- GIESBRECHT was flown to the Children's Hospital of Western Ontario in London, where he died.
Oxford Community police, paramedics and Bright volunteer firefighters were called to the VAN BOEKEL pig farm on Township Road 9 in Blandford-Blenheim about 7: 17 p.m. Thursday.
They found the little boy unconscious in a ditch filled with rainwater from a downpour earlier that day.
FRIESSEN- GIESBRECHT had wandered onto a construction site on the farm, police said.
One neighbour, Samantha, who wouldn't give her last name, said she heard sirens and saw fire trucks on the rural road Thursday after a heavy rain.
"It was kind of scary because I didn't know where they were going," she said.
"I thought somebody had been hurt on the farm. I never thought it would be a little boy that drowned. That's terrible."
The family had lots of children, but kept to themselves, neighbours said.
No one answered the door at the modest house yesterday.
A tire swing, tricycle and other children's toys were scattered in the front lawn.
Construction equipment was on land behind the house.
"It's shocking, especially being a little one," said neighbour Janice BRIETENSTEIN.
"You just want to weep for the people. I can't imagine what they're going through."
The family has rented the house from Eric VAN BOEKEL for about two years, neighbours said.
VAN BOEKEL declined comment when reached yesterday.
Police are still probing the boy's death and Ontario's Labour Ministry also is investigating because the area involved a construction site.

Farm mishap kills man
Free Press Staff
A Chatham-Kent man was killed Saturday when the tractor he was driving rolled into a pond, pinning him underneath, police said yesterday.
The accident occurred shortly after 9 a.m. when Wilfred VAN WAES, 36, was driving the tractor and an attached pesticide sprayer at a Shewburg Road farm.
Chatham-Kent emergency services, including police, fire and paramedics, rushed to the scene and managed to free VAN WAES, who was taken to Chatham-Kent Health Alliance's general campus where he died a short time later.
Six firefighters, a paramedic and two Chatham-Kent police officers were exposed to a pesticide during the rescue and were treated at hospital and release.
They are expected to make a full recovery.
Additional information was not available at press time.
