SAINT-REMI, Que. - Another Quebec infant has died after drowning in a swimming pool.

The two-year-old girl drowned today — just four days after an 18-month-old girl suffered the same fate and a week after a 16-month-old girl died in similar circumstances.

Today's death occurred in an above-ground pool in Saint-Remi, 30 kilometres south of Montreal.

An ambulance spokesman says family members were trying to revive the girl when health authorities arrived on the scene.

She was declared dead after being taken to hospital.

There have been more than 40 drowning deaths in Quebec this year.
