A 2-year-old boy drowned in the bathtub at a southeast Oklahoma City home Tuesday night.

According to Oklahoma City police, officers responded to the report of a possible drowning just after 7 p.m. at a home, located in the 5600 block of Runway Road, near S.E. 59th and Sooner in Oklahoma City.

The mother told police she was bathing the boy in the bathtub, and left him alone for a short time. When she returned, the child was under water and was not breathing.

The boy was transported to the OU Medical Children’s Center, where he was later pronounced dead.

Police have not identified the child. Officers say this appears to be a tragic accident.
