A two-year-old girl was found dead at a Toronto Community Housing building on Friday morning, EMS say.

Paramedics were called to 200 Wellesley, near Sherbourne Street, just after 9 a.m. this morning.

The coroner has been notified and police detectives are taking over the investigation.

A neighbour told CBC News that the girl lived in the apartment unit with her mother, a young woman.

"A very cute little girl, sweet," the neighbour said describing the toddler. "She looked like she was well taken care of."

It's not clear how long the toddler had been dead when paramedics arrived.
