I posted this in the question but.......
It only takes a few seconds, they say, turning away for just a moment.
So the CPSC
is recommending that parents and caregivers follow these safety tips when
children are around bathtubs, spas, buckets, or decorative ponds or
Never leave young children alone near any water. Young children can drown in even small amounts of water.
Always keep a young child within arm’s reach in a bathtub.
Never leave to answer the phone, answer the door, get a towel or for
any other reason. If you must leave, take the child with you.
Don’t leave a baby or toddler in a bathtub under the care of another young child.
Never leave a bucket containing even a small amount of liquid
unattended. Toddlers can fall headfirst into buckets and drown. After
using a bucket, always empty and store it where young children cannot
reach it. Buckets left outside can collect rainwater and are a hazard.
Prevent children from gaining access to spas or hot tubs when not in use; always secure with safety covers and barriers.
Learn CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation). It can be a lifesaver when seconds count.

Common sense advice, I know of a lady that use to give her toddle about 4 or 5 baths a day, she used the tub as a sitter, and the 2 year old ended up drowning in the tub and dying!!!
