A 12-year-old boy in Alberta has died after an apartment building was ecacuated due to carbon monoxide.

E-M-S were called to the 136-unit complex in Airdrie yesterday morning for a report of a child in medical distress, but they quickly realized there was a carbon monoxide danger.

R-C-M-P Insp. Kimberley Pasloske (paz-LOSS-kee) says police will work with the fire department and the coroner to determine what happened and why, as well as whether charges will be laid.

Pasloske says two other members of the boy's family were treated in hospital, while one other resident of the building was treated at a recreation centre. (The Canadian Press)

Police say the little girl was a passenger in the S-U-V and died at the scene.

The woman who was driving the S-U-V and the man behind the wheel of the pickup were both transported by air ambulance to Edmonton. (The Canadian Press)
