A teenage girl and her mother are gravely injured after an assault on a high-rise building of Scarborough on Friday night.
Neighbors called 911 at about 6:00 p.m. after they heard an attack inside an apartment in the Danforth and McCowan area near Lawrence East Avenue, according to Toronto police.
Emergency teams found a 17-year-old girl with no vital signs and stab wounds on her upper body. She was rushed to the SickKids hospital in a life-threatening condition, according to paramedics.
"[Officers] she got ready for the EMS, and it looks like it probably helped save her life right now, "43-year-old Detective Jason Hillier told reporters at the scene.
The teen's mother, believed to be in her 30s, was also taken to the Sunnybrook Health Science Center with a head injury, police said. She is in serious condition, but no risk of life.
