EMS and police were called to a family farm on St. Helen’s Line in Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh at 8:55 p.m. Sunday after receiving a call for assistance.

Investigators say a group of siblings were playing outside when an 18-month old girl wandered away from the family to an adjacent barn where livestock was being kept.

The child was rushed to an area hospital by paramedics however attempts to revive her were unsuccessful.
