Indian Creek Toddler Drowns in Tub

On Wednesday there was a tragic incident in the community of Indian Creek in the Orange Walk District. A toddler left inside a home apparently toppled into a bowl of water and drowned. According to Police Anna Blatz had just fed her daughter at around eleven that morning and then went outside the home, leaving her daughter inside. That’s all it took for the child to wander into a situation that turned fatal.

“Acting upon information Orange Walk police visited Indian Creek Village in Orange Walk District where they saw the motionless body of a one year two month old baby girl. Initial investigation reveals that on said date, at about eleven-fifteen a.m., the baby had just been fed by her mother who left the baby as she usually does to play in the house. Fifteen minutes later when her sixteen year old brother arrived home, he found his little sister motionless in a green tub filled with water and clothes in the laundry room. He alerted his father who tried to revive his sister, but she was already dead and water was coming out of her mouth. No foul play is suspected.”

“Well we have to investigate if there was any negligence on the parent’s side. So we are still looking at that side of the investigation.”
