Toddler drowns in pool of water under kitchen sink

A 16-month-old toddler Muhammad Fahil Finaz Nor Azuan drowned in a bucket at home in Kampung Bukit Gombang, Batu Kikir, Malaysia on Monday night.

The toddler's mother discovered the incident about 10.40pm, after realising that the little boy was not with his father and three-year-old sister.

Fahil's father, Nor Azuan Azali, 33, (pictured carrying the body) said his wife thought that their son was with him in their room but sensed something wrong as she did not hear his voice.

"We later found him with his head and half his body submerged inside a water-filled bucket under the kitchen sink. My wife and I tried to resuscitate him but failed. We then rushed him to the Tuanku Ampuan Najihah Hospital for treatment,"

Sadly, the child was confirmed dead by doctors. The body was brought to the forensic unit for post-mortem. Meanwhile, Jempol district police chief Superintendent Noorzainy Mohd Noor said police have classified the case as sudden death.
