Baby girl in CYF care drowns in bucket

5:05PM Thursday May 10, 2007

 

An 11-month-old girl who drowned in a bucket in the Auckland suburb of Lynfield this afternoon was in the care of Child, Youth and Family.

Police spokeswoman Noreen Hegarty said police were called after 12.30pm to the home and were told the child had drowned.

Ms Hegarty said police had carried out preliminary inquiries at the scene of the baby’s death and did not believe her death was suspicious.

However several more inquiries were yet to be completed, as was the case with any sudden death, she said.

The child lived at the address with a caregiver of Child, Youth and Family.

A St John ambulance spokesman said the child had her head in a bucket of water.

CPR was performed on the baby but the child died at the scene.

A post-mortem examination was expected to be held tomorrow.
