Mayfair boy, 10, drowns in tub

A bathtub drown­ing of a 10-year-old May­fair boy on April 16 was an ac­ci­dent, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

The tragedy oc­curred in­side a row­house on the 3100 block of Magee Ave. at about 11:20 a.m. The boy’s grand­moth­er dis­covered him face down and un­con­scious in the tub and called 911, po­lice said.
