A two-year-old boy drowned in a bucket of water at home, in Vinoba Nagar, Tondiarpet, on Saturday.

A. Ibrahim was playing in the hall of the house, on 9th Street in Vinoba Nagar, while his father, S. Aakrim (30), worked in a corner of the room. Ibrahim’s mother, A. Fathima (25), had gone to drop his sister to school.

Around 11.30 a.m., Ibrahim is suspected to have moved to the bathroom without his father noticing. When Aakrim went looking for his son after a while, he found the boy submerged in a bucket of water in the bathroom.
