CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - Police say a 7-month-old Southeast Texas boy has died following a bathing accident when his mother left him alone and his bath seat fell into the water.

Investigators in Corpus Christi say Timothy Williams III died on Tuesday, a day after his bath seat tipped in the tub at the family’s apartment.

Corpus Christi police around midday Monday responded to a report of a near drowning when a 23-year-old mother found her infant in the bath 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 says 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.
