VERNAL, Utah (AP) - A Vernal infant has died 11 days after being found unresponsive in his family’s hot tub.

Sixteen-month-old Bronx Young died Saturday at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City.

Family members phoned 911 after finding the child in the hot tub on April 28.

Uintah County sheriff’s deputies say the infant somehow got into the tub after a family member partially removed its cover to check the water and walked away.

Investigators say the child appeared to have been in the tub for a short period of time, and the death was a tragic accident.
