A Montreal mother of two who was pulled from a river with her two young sons has died.Police spokesman Danny Richer said the 28-year-old woman, who has not been identified, died Wednesday at 1 p.m. The woman's four-year-old son died April 18, 10 days after the apparent murder-suicide attempt.
Police said the boy and his brother had been dragged into the icy waters off the city's north end on April 8. The older boy was tied to the mother's wrist while the baby was in her arms, police said.
They remained in the water for several minutes until a passerby rescued them.
The two-month-old baby is doing well and has been discharged from the hospital, police said. The baby is being cared for by family.
