em>By BBN Staff: On Monday a child drowned inside a bucket in Belama, Belize City.

Today Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Alejandro Cowo, provided an update on investigations.

He revealed that initial investigations revealed that the child was in the company of relatives on Albert Hoy Street hours before her death.

Her mother was in the kitchen preparing supper and so she left the child in the room with a minor.

However, the minor was sent to make a purchase at a nearby store.

Upon his return, relatives asked where was the child.

It was not until they checked the bathroom that they realized that the child had drowned in a bucket.

According to ASP Cowo, police are at this time contemplating laying charges of neglect against the mother of the deceased child.

He revealed that investigators are waiting for a directive from the Director of Public Prosecution before doing so.
