A one-and-half-year-old toddler drowned when he fell into a bucket filled with water at his home, police said today.

Shone Joshi was trying to play with the water in the bucket which was inside the bathroom when he tripped and fell into the water at Kalady in Ernakulam district yesterday, police said.

The parents were teaching their daughter, an LKG student, and the baby was in the same room. However, after some time the child was not found in the room and a search led them to the bathroom where they found the baby fallen into the water filled bucket.

Though the child was rushed to a nearby hospital, the baby had breathed his last by then.
