A "perfect" three-year-old was found dead in the bath after his mother left to wash, an investigation said.

Aayan Ishaq was found facing the water in his home in Longsight after his mother let him play for "10 to 15 minutes".

He was taken to the hospital but could not be saved.

An investigation revealed that his mother, Shahrish Idris, was later prosecuted and convicted for neglecting a child after leaving him unattended.

However, a survey heard today does not determine exactly how the young person died.

Ms. Idris stated that her son, born in Surrey but residing in Manchester at the time, had spent most of the day playing outside the day before his death and had asked him if he could take a bath to play with his toys.



Sahrish Idris leaves Manchester Crown Court after being sentenced to suspended sentence for child neglect

In his testimony, he stated: "His bedtime was normally at 9 pm, but I was not too severe about him because he had opened his nursery at 1 pm to get up later on Monday.

"During the day, he was playing outside.

"He said he wanted a bath, he liked to take a bath, he got his toys and put them in."

"I filled him first then he came in. He was sitting and playing with the water.

I think it was on his chest.

"I sat with him for five or ten minutes, then I went to get his clothes.

"I had three machine shipments that day."



Aayan's mother described him as the "perfect little boy"

An ambulance attendant stated that Ms. Idris had told her that she had left him in the bath for about 10 to 15 minutes and that she was bending the dried laundry.

She said that she could not hear her from the main room on the ground floor and when she went back up the stairs, she said, "I found her lying in the bath. "

When asked how he was lying, she replied, "I'm not really sure, I tried to block this day."

She said that she had taken him out of the tub and took him to his room and said: "I was on the phone with the ambulance, but I was drying him up. also.

"They asked me to do CPR but I was so scared and panicked that I could not do it," she added.

When asked if she had carried out other rescue attempts, such as mouth-to-mouth, she replied, "I was too scared, I could not."



An autopsy could not say for sure how he was dead

She also said that at one point she had disconnected the bath and let the water run off.

When asked why she had done this, she replied, "I do not know, that's exactly what I thought I would do."

Paying tribute to her son, she said: "It was an adorable boy.

"He had recently started at the nursery, 15 hours a week, and he loved going there.

"He loved to play, he loved to play with his nephews and nieces.

"He always listened to me.

"He was just the perfect little boy."

Paramedics arrived at the Giles Street Joint House in Longsight shortly before 23:40 and Aayan was transported to the A + E Department of the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.



Sahrish Idris did not cause the death of her son but endangered him, said a judge when she was sentenced by the Crown Court.

However, attempts at resuscitation were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead just after midnight on the morning of March 27, 2017.

An autopsy was performed and the medical cause of his death was given as unknown.

Two pathologists who worked together on the examination stated that they could not rule out an unnatural death, such as drowning, as he had been found immersed in the water.

However, they said that a natural incident such as a sudden cardiac arrest also could not be ruled out.

Police Coroner Officer Paul Devine said there was no sign of injury and that all foul play was excluded.

However, as a result of the police investigation, Ms. Idris was cautiously interrogated and then charged with two counts of child negligence, for which she pleaded guilty in October 2017.



The investigation took place at the offices of The Royal Exchange.

One of the charges was on the day of her death and a second on her admission to Aayan who had eaten three of her antidepressant pills while sitting on a kitchen worktop for about three minutes .

Judge David Stockdale, of the Recorder of Manchester, sentencing her to a six-month suspended sentence, said she "did not hurt her" and "did not caused her death ", but that she was guilty of" cruelty "and" having put her to death ". at risk. "

The investigation was informed that the family and the local child protection services had had contact with his mother's mental health and that a serious case had been examined on behalf of the backup advice after his death.

Valerie Charles, who drafted the report, told the survey that there are areas to learn, such as improving communication between agencies, but that in the end: "There was no really nothing that could have predicted or prevented it.

"The family has not attracted agency attention frequently.

"Mom's presentation was generally very positive."

Deputy Coroner John Hobson made an open conclusion stating that "the evidence is simply not there to record anything except that."

"He went to the manger three times a week.

"On March 26, he played and started on a normal Sunday with a flexible schedule compared to the week.
