Baby drowns in bucket; police investigate

A fourteen month old baby is dead, the result of what appears to be an accidental drowning. Police report that on Saturday evening they were called to Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where they were told by Alfonso Catch, a thirty four year old watchman of mile twelve on the Western Highway, that he found the lifeless body of his daughter Luz Clarita Catch, in a bucket of water at their home. She was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital. More details, including the results of a post mortem, have not been released but police indicate that a full investigation will be conducted.
