The 7-year-old boy is fighting for his life at the intensive care unit at the hospital. The spokesperson says that it is clear that the woman is not mentally sound.

The police were called at about 10.30 am to sport park De Schenkel because a child was in the water and in danger. Officers found the mother there in a car with the unconscious boy. The woman was in an agitated state.
