He was rushed to a hospital but was declared dead on arrival, the Basaveshwarnagar police said.

A year-old boy drowned in a bucket in his home at Manjunathanagar on Saturday morning. Tanish’s mother, Navneeta, had gone to drop off his sister Kaushal at school while his father, Ramesh, an insurance firm employee, was resting as he was unwell.

The toddler wandered off into the bathroom and reached into the bucket which was half-full of water. He is believed to have lost his balance and fallen into it.

His mother came home a few minutes later to find him unconscious in the bucket. He was rushed to a hospital but was declared dead on arrival, the Basaveshwarnagar police said.

I feel pity for the family .I know it is not thoroughly apt to criticise the heart-broken parents in this context.But it could have been avoided.Poeple often say that toddlers are always to be accompanied by someone because that is the stage of learning to walk and if parents are careless it will result in tragedy one way or the other.A life is nipped in the bud.Why can't we avoid such tragedies further?
