A little boy who managed to get out of a locked door at home fell into a creek and drowned in Cedar Rapids.

KCRG reports Christopher Morrison Jr. loved to play near Indian Creek.  Police said he had always been supervised when he played near the creek.

Christopher somehow managed to get out of a locked door May 31, 2013.  He went to the creek alone, where he slipped on the muddy bank and fell into the water.

Volunteers searching the area found Christopher’s body in the creek.
