    Police say a 15-month-old boy died after being found in a bathtub at a home on South Main Street in Torrington on Tuesday.

    A 15-month-old baby boy is dead after being found unresponsive in a bathtub in Torrington on Tuesday morning and the cause of death is not yet clear.

    An autopsy was performed and the Office of Chief Medical Examiners reported "pending further study" as its initial findings. 

    Police said the baby’s mother called 911 at 10:54 a.m. on Monday after arriving home and learning what happened while the baby had been in the care of a man. Police made special note to say the child's mother was not home when the incident happened.  

    Torrington police, the fire department and Campion Ambulance responded to the home in the 400 block of South Main Street and the child was transported to Charlotte Hungerford Hospital, where he later died.

    Police said the investigation is ongoing and they expect it to take time to look into various aspects of the situation.
