Ontario boy dies after getting hit by puck

A 10-year-old Ontario boy hit in the head by a hockey puck on the weekend has died.

Guelph police say Nicholas Lambden was not wearing a helmet when he was playing hockey with friends at an outdoor rink.

He was hit by a puck from a nearby group of hockey players.

Emergency personnel revived him at the scene and he was airlifted to Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children.

Police wouldn't comment on whether a helmet would have made a difference.

Oh my, I heard about this story and the status then was he was in critical condition.

I wonder how the parents feel, what a meaningless and unexplainable death.

This shows the importance of wearing head protection.

Canada should (IMO):

Add CSA standards to all helmets rather than just hockey helmets (there currently are no standards for bike helmets like there is in Europe).

Require helmets while tobaggonning for all kids under 12.

Require helmets while skating at all public rinks (indoor or outdoor) for all kids under 12.
