A 1-year-old Maine boy died Thursday after his mother found him in a plastic container filled with water outside their Clinton home on Tuesday.
Maine State Police said Clinton police responded to the call at the home on Elwood Drive just before 7 p.m. The child's mother reportedly found him in a plastic tote that was outside the home after another child told her what was happening.
The boy was unresponsive when emergency crews arrived. He was taken to a local hospital and then airlifted to Maine Medical Center.
A spokeswoman for Maine State Police said Thursday that the boy has died.
State police detectives are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident.
