Mom watches TV, 9-month-old boy drowns in bucket

KALYAN: A nine-month-old boy drowned in a bucket of water at a flat in Sikandar Colony, Kalyan, on Wednesday, while his mother was watching television. The incident was the second such in the locality in six months; in March, a four-year-old boy died after falling into a bucket of hot water while his mother was in the kitchen.

It was around 11.30 am on Wednesday that Akash Sikre’s mother realized that she had not heard his voice for an unusual stretch of time. After discovering him immobile in the bucket, she raised an alarm. The boy was taken to hospital, where he was declared brought dead.

Akash was an only child. Senior inspector Jaysingh Chavan of the Tilak Nagar police station said: “The victim’s father, Vishal, works at a catering unit in Dombivli. He was on duty when the tragedy occurred.”

Vishal Sikre said he wanted to appeal to people to take care of their children, especially those who liked playing in water. “My son had the habit of playing in water. I think he went into the bathroom, but slipped and fell into the bucket.”

The Tilak Nagar police have registered a case of accidental death.
