A 5 month old baby boy was found dead in a bucket of urine by his parents early Thursday morning.

The family lives at Picton Road, Laventille.

According to reports, 29-year-old Kevon Pacheco told police that he woke up and went over to the bed where his wife and son five-month-old Kydari Pacheco were sleeping.

But his son was not there. Pacheco said he woke his wife and asked for Kydari and the two turned on a lamp.

They then found the toddler at around 4.35a.m. head down in a plastic pail by his father in a bucket of urine.

He was pronounced dead at the Port-of-Spain General Hospital.

Police believe the child rolled off the bed and fell into the pail while his mother, Nikita Wilson, was asleep.

Relatives said the couple had no bathroom and used the pail at nights. They would sometimes use the bathroom at the nearby home of Pacheco’s mother.

Pacheco told police that he was in the process of building a bathroom at his home.

The couple were said to be inconsolable since their son’s death.

Investigations are continuing.
