A toddler died after falling in a bucket of water in east Delhi's Ashok Nagar, the police said today.

The baby went to the bathroom with a tumbler and started dipping it in a bucket of water. When the tumbler fell in water he leaned to retrieve it and fell in the bucket, the police said.

The mother was asleep during the incident and she woke up only after her husband returned from work, it said.

The baby was taken to a nearby hospital where doctors failed to resuscitate him, it added.
