A one-year-old drowns in a Caldwell motel bathroom and now the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services is investigating.

The drowning happened at the Caldwell Motel off Highway 21 Saturday.

Investigators aren't releasing many details but what we do know is that the one-year-old boy, his two-year-old sibling and their parents lived at the motel.

It's unclear exactly what led to the drowning but the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services is looking into neglectful supervision.

"Neglectful supervision is an umbrella of many different actions that parents can take but basically it means placing the child in any situation that they aren't mature enough to handle," said TxDFPS spokeswoman, Julie Moody.

The two-year-old sibling has been placed into the care of child protective services while they investigate what happened.
