A northwest suburban child died ten days after being found unresponsive in a bathtub.

The 11-month-old boy was left alone for a short period of time in an infant bath that was inside a tub filled with water on July 1. When the child's father returned, the baby was face-down in the bathtub next to the infant bath.

The Buffalo Grove child had been on life support.

Investigators believe the death was an accident. The Department of Children and Family Services is investigating.
