Subject: Six month old child in fatal accident after she is left unattended in bath at her home
A six month old child who was sadly in a fatal accident in her own home as her mother, aged 22 bathed her.
The accident happened when the child’s mother had placed the nine month old in a small tub in their bath at the family home when she left her with her father, aged 24, who continued to bath her.
After realising that there were no clean nappies or towels, the child’s father went downstairs to look for some, leaving the nine month old unattended in the tub of water. After several minutes returning the child was found floating face down in the bath tub. Her father attempted to resuscitate her but she sadly died.
