HOUSTON Houston police say they are investigating the apparent drowning death of an 11-month-old boy at an apartment in Greenspoint.

It happened at about 12:50 p.m. in the 630 block of Rushcreek.

An adult family friend was watching the infant and his three sisters at the time because the children s mother had become ill and was at a hospital emergency room, police said.

Investigators said the baby fell into the bathtub as a bath was being drawn, despite the bathroom door being closed by the person who started the bath water.

The baby was found in a matter of minutes and 911 was called, according to police.

Paramedics transported the boy to Houston Northwest Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

No charges have been filed in this case.
