A nine-year-old boy is in critical condition after his jacket became entangled in a garage door at his home in Oakville, Ont.

Paramedics were called to the home near Bronte Road and Dundas Street West at around 7:15 p.m. Monday evening by a passerby who tried to help the boy.

He was rushed to a local hospital, then transferred to Sick Kids hospital in Toronto.
