The boy — unattended and in his baby walker — wandered off on his own out of the barbecue site and onto a path that had a shallow water trough on the side that was about 1 foot-wide and 2 inches-deep. He was flipped head-first into the water after his walker went into the trough and turned upside down. According to the newspaper, the parents found the boy after few minutes, and lifeguards at the swimming pool next the the barbecue site also rushed to the scene and tried to resuscitate the child after hearing the parents’ cry for help.

Emergency services were called, and police were at the apartment block to review CCTV footage. They believe the boy had been underwater for a few minutes. The newspaper reports that he was possibly under water for around seven to eight minutes.
