NEW DELHI: A two-year-old boy died after accidently falling into a bucket full of water in Delhi's Wazipur area on Tuesday.

Police said two-year-old Aditya was last seen alive while playing on the house stairs in Wazirpur while his father was sleeping inside. When he woke up around 5 p.m., he found Aditya lying lifeless in the bucket, a police officer said.

The boy was taken to a nearby hospital where doctors declared him brought dead. 

"Prima facie, it appears Aditya accidentally slipped from the stairs and fell into the bucket. He could not come out and drowned," he said.
