POLICE – Infant taken from hospital, located and safely returned

An infant is receiving medical attention after a partnership between police, health, and family services led to the newborn’s safe return to the hospital.

On April 14, 2021, just before 2 a.m., Kamloops RCMP received information regarding an infant who had been taken from the hospital against medical advice related to the baby’s survival.

Due to concerns for the infant’s life, Kamloops RCMP officers located and stopped the vehicle, then provided medical assistance to the newborn until BC Emergency Health Services paramedics arrived.

“Thanks to the partnerships between police and those in both the health and family services sectors, including BC Emergency Health Services, the newborn was located and safely returned to the medical facility, as required to help assist in the infant’s survival,” said Const. Crystal Evelyn.

“At last check, the baby was in stable condition and the appropriate family supports were engaged.”

The police investigation into the infant’s removal from the hospital is ongoing.
