Grief engulfed a Ejinja village in Matungu, Kakamega county after a 10-month old baby drowned in a basin full of water.

The shocking incident occurred on Monday evening when the baby’s mother, Audrey Akumu, was doing the family’s laundry outside her house.

The 25-year old was carrying out the task as her young one played and cooed softly just behind her.

“Suddenly, she realized that the baby had gone silent and turned back to see if he was okay, only to see him drowned inside a basin full of water,” a statement by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations read.

The confused mother raised an alarm alerting her neighbors who rushed and retrieved the baby from the water.

“The young mother started running around confused as she wailed, attracting her neighbors who came running and retrieved the baby from the water. They rushed the baby to nearby Bliss Medical Centre where the baby was pronounced dead on arrival,” DCI said.

 Meanwhile, the DCI advises parents and guardians that it is never too late to save a child’s life, even if they stop breathing. Perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) even if a child is unresponsive and do not stop until medical professionals take over.
