A 4-year-old girl was killed after falling underneath a float at the annual Santa Claus parade, in Canada officials said. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said in a news release the incident happened just before 7 p.m. on Saturday in the town of Yarmouth. “She was not on the float. She was running alongside the moving float when she fell underneath the float,” Nova Scotia Cpl. Dal Hutchinson told CBC News.
The girl was rushed to the hospital but was pronounced dead shortly after arriving. Those who were watching the parade said the scene devolved into “mayhem” as spectators realized what was happening. Police said the incident remains under investigation.
