JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - Jamestown police say the death of a toddler who drowned in a bathtub appears to be accidental.

Capt. Gary Peterson on Monday identified the child as 1 ½-year-old Eli Swensrud. He says the boy died Saturday while being cared for by a woman who lived in the home with him and his father.

Peterson says the boy’s father and mother were not there when he died.

Police are awaiting autopsy results, but Peterson says authorities believe the death to be accidental.
