Somerton, AZ March 24 -- A 13-month old child has died and the parents are under arrest, according to a relative at the scene.
According to a sheriff's office spokesman, rescue personnel received a call around 11:40am Wednesday morning. The child's parents had called 911, saying the boy was found in a 4-foot-deep makeshift septic tank. A 911 operator helped someone on the scene administer CPR, but the child died.
The parents told sheriff's deputies the child had only been missing for a few minutes, but authorities say the child body temperature indicates he was underwater for quite awhile.
The child's great-grandfathers identified the child as 13-month-old Aiden Wilson.
The accident happened outside the family's trailer in Somerton. They family operated a pony riding business. The great-grandfather says there are two other children living in the home. He says both parents have been arrested. The father is being charged with hindering prosecution.
