"This is a frightful, unimaginable unspeakable tragedy", police investigator Francis Camp told the newspaper.

A 3-year-old boy has died after falling into a grease trap at the Tim Hortons on University Avenue in Rochester. The trap was embedded in the ground covered by a plastic lid.

Attempts were made to revive the boy but they were unsuccessful, according to Camp.

"This is the worst thing that you can encounter as a police officer", Camp said.

Camp said that police received a call about a child missing from the location at 10:56 a.m. Minutes later, they received another call that the child had been located.

Tim Hortons emailed the Democrat and Chronicle a statement calling it "a tragedy".

Investigators had not yet determined the size of the grease trap, which is typically a steel tank used to keep fats, oils, and grease out of the sanitary sewer system, according to the report.

A Barcelona police spokesperson said: "There is no limit to the inventiveness of drug traffickers trying to mock controls". The size of the wig and the hat he was wearing on top of it were sufficient cause for the man to be stopped.


A 3-year-old child died in Auburn, Alabama, after falling into a grease pit in October 2017 while on a family outing at an ice cream shop.

The three-foot-wide traps are meant to dispose of used grease from the kitchen.

Several people at the outside the restaurant, including Tim Hortons employees, were in distress and emotional as first responders arrived.

Rochester Police are continuing to investigate the incident.

"Obviously, this is something that's foreign to us", said Camp, "so we have to come [up] with some type of solution to safely measure the depth and volume of what the content of this thing is".
