Baby drowns in O.W. septic tank

Another innocent child has died in a senseless accident, this time in Orange Walk town. Police report that on Thursday afternoon, the body of three-year-old Sanny Adair Fabian was found floating in an open septic tank located in his backyard on Santa Familia Street. The child’s father, twenty-five year old Armando Campos told police that he went out around 11:00 that morning, leaving the toddler in the care of its mother, Heisaonelia Fabian. However, when Campos came back to the house around 1:00 in the afternoon and asked for the child, she couldn’t find him. Alarmed, Campos immediately formed a search party with his neighbours and scoured the area. Hours later, at around 5:00 p.m., the group made the sad discovery of little Sanny in the septic tank. He was taken to the Northern Regional Hospital where authorities pronounced him dead on arrival. Police sources tell News 5 that the tank is under construction and recent rains had not only delayed construction, but had filled it with water. We understand that on Thursday, the tank was not covered. Investigations into this incident continued today as police try to determine whether or not charges of negligent homicide can be filed against the child’s parents.
