From Eyewitness News:
OZONE PARK (WABC) -- An 11-month-old toddler drowned Monday morning after he climbed face-first into a bucket inside an illegal Queens daycare facility, according to a law enforcement source familiar with the investigation.
The child, who was not immediately identified, was in cardiac arrest when EMS arrived. He was rushed to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The liquid contents of the bucket could not be confirmed.
The daycare center was operated from a single-family house, at 101-27 108th Street in Richmond Hill, Queens, and was illegal, according to sources. The name of the facility, if it has one, could not be confirmed. In the window are letters reading "Childcare All Day Every Day."
Detectives are questioning the owner of the house and at least one other adult who was present at the time of the drowning. Law enforcement sources tell Eyewitness News the owner will be arrested, but charges have not been filed.
