A four year old Tunapuna boy is suspected to have drowned in a swimming pool neighbouring his relatives' home in Rio Claro on Sunday.
Shiva Kaniah, of Pasea Village, was found unresponsive in the swimming pool, and pronounced dead at hospital.
Little Shiva was left by his parents in the care of a 67 year old female relative at her home at Ridge Road, San Pedro, Poole Village.
The woman told police that the child left her home unknown to her on Sunday afternoon.
When she was unable to find him, she contacted her son, who was working at the neighbour's premises.
He found the child's body in the pool around 4.30 p.m.
The child was taken to the Rio Claro District Health Facility, but doctors were unable to revive him.
An autopsy is expected to be done on Monday.
WPC Simmons is continuing investigations.
