ECORSE (WWJ) - Ecorse police continue to investigate the bathtub drowning of a 2-year-old child.

Officials are calling the drowning an accident, but are looking into allegations that the child had suffered abuse in the past by the mother.

Police say Hassen Barber took custody of his 2-year-old after the abuse allegations, and was giving the child a bath when he was distracted and left the bathroom.

Barber told police when he returned he found the child unresponsive.
