There was a Christmas tragedy in St. John’s on Thursday. A senior citizen fell into the frigid waters of a stream leading into Kenny’s Pond and died.

A man walking his two dogs made the discovery around 2 p.m. Police, Eastern Health, and the St. John’s Regional Fire Department were called to the report of a woman in the water. The man who found the body says it looked like she had been there for some time.

Kenny’s Pond is surrounded by a number of senior citizen’s homes. Police say the woman’s death does not appear suspicious.
