The drowning death of an 8-month-old boy prompted the questioning of a couple Saturday morning, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The infant drowned about 9 a.m. Friday at a home in the 1500 block of Pass and Covina roads in Valinda, about 20 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, officials said. The baby died at a hospital.

Sheriff's homicide detectives questioned a couple from the home where the drowning occurred early Saturday. The couple's relationship to the baby was not clear.

No additional details were immediately available.
