Texas Infant Whose Bath Seat Tipped In The Tub Dies

CORPUS CHRISTI (August 13, 2014) A 7-month-old Corpus Christi boy who fell into the water when his bath seat tipped after his mother left him alone in the family’s tub has died.

Timothy Williams III died Tuesday, a day after the bath seat tipped in the tub at his family's apartment, police said.

Officers found the boy after responding at around noon Monday to a report of a near drowning.

The infant’s 23-year-old mother found her son in the water.

Police say the woman was bathing the boy but left him alone when an older child in the living room started crying.

The mother told officers she returned to discover the bath seat on its side and the infant in the water.

A coroner did not immediately release a cause of death.
