A ONE-year-old baby boy has drowned after his drunken father passed out on the floor while bathing him.
Enrique Alberto Machado from Texas has been charged with felony murder following the death of his son.
Baby Carlos was found face up in the bath by his mother last weekend – neighbours were alerted after hearing the woman scream for help.
Despite the woman’s screams, dad Enrique remained asleep on the bathroom floor.
He told police he was responsible for the death – saying that he drank six beers with work colleagues before returning home to look after his son.
Machado has been set a $100,000 bail.
