TRAGEDY struck a Gelvandale family just after midnight on Saturday when a baby boy drowned in a bucket used as a toilet.
Family members at the Leith Road house tried to resuscitate eight-month-old Lester Wagner after his mother’s cousin, Christiana Wagner, 38, found him at about 12.15am yesterday, face down in the bucket.
The incident comes a week after 18-month-old Jaelyn Barendse drowned in the pool at her home in Mountain View, Uitenhage. – Riaan Marais
