Iowa child drowned in bathtub


ANDREW, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities say a 4-year-old eastern Iowa boy apparently drowned in a bathtub.

The child, Collin Parker William Holdgrafer, of Andrew, died last Saturday. The Jackson County sheriff's office says emergency crews responded to a 911 call about 5 p.m. The boy was rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The sheriff's office says the boy's father, Andrew Holdgrafer, made the 911 call while taking him to the hospital. Officials met them in Maquoketa, where the boy was put in an ambulance and taken to Jackson County Regional Health Center in Maquoketa.

The boy's death remains under investigation.
