When the child finally fell asleep on a couch on the first floor of the home with his mother Rachel Baseke.
About 10:30am other family members awoke and as they came downstairs noticed the child was not with the mother. A search of the house turned up nothing so they went out to the backyard. Still not seeing anything they walked to the waters edge where they found the child floating face up near the dock. The grandfather immediately pulled the unresponsive child out and started CPR.
