PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE – A one-year-old infant is lucky to be alive after a single car collision in Portage la Prairie.
Late Friday night, the car rolled over into a ditch, landing on the drivers side.
Officers arrived to find a screaming infant in his car seat, partially submerged in freezing cold water.
A Mountie climbed in through a broken window and cut the child free from the seat.
Two other infants were in the car at the time as well as two 29-year-old women. They were all taken to hospital.
The driver has been charged with driving while impaired and is in police custody.
