TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ An 18-month-old boy died Monday after he was found floating face-down in a bathtub.

Kado Jordon died about 1 p.m. Monday at Hillcrest Medical Center, where he had been in critical condition, police Sgt. Wayne Allen said.

The boy was found about 9 p.m. Sunday when emergency workers were called to a home after the boy was found floating face-down in the bathtub. His mother had been cutting the hair of a cousin's 7-year-old daughter.

Allen said the girl went inside to look at her haircut and found the baby. There were no adults in the house, but the boy's 3-year-old and 2 1/2-year-old brothers were also in the tub, he said.

Police said the baby's death was accidental, based on a preliminary investigation.
