In the fall of 2013, a little boy was taken to a Calgary hospital by his parents.

The 14-month-old child was in “severe medical distress.”

Soon after, he was transferred by ambulance to the nearby Children’s Hospital where he suffered a cardiac arrest.

Multiple trauma doctors and specialists saw and treated John. He was put on an IV and placed on a ventilator, but hours later he went into a second cardiac arrest.

On Nov. 29, 2013, at 12:47 p.m. — less than 24 hours after his parents first brought him to the hospital — John was declared dead.

Police were called to investigate.

What led to this little boy's death?
