An 18-month-old baby boy drowned in a basin filled with water at Xobo village, in Dutywa, Eastern Cape police said on Thursday.
Captain Jackson Manatha said the infant drowned on Wednesday, whilst playing in a basin. His mother was busy taking topless selfies after doing her washing. He was declared dead at a local clinic.
There was nothing the Doctors could do to save the poor little child as he had already taken lots of soap water.
The police were investigating an inquest.
