Toddler drowned in toilet bucket while mum played mahjong with friends

A two-year-old girl drowned in a toilet bucket after mum left her unattended while playing the Chinese tiles game, mahjong.

The mother and her friends were playing the game in their neighbour's home in Shenzhen City, Guangdong Province, Southern News Network reported.

The woman had brought her toddler along, but the child was left unattended while her mother was enjoying the game.

Police said the child was playing with a large bucket of water which was used for flushing a toilet.

The toddler fell into the bucket and drowned. According to her father, the 70-80 cm deep bucket was too big for the two-year-old to get out of it on her own.
