Resident at ISSH Drowns

A 36-year old wheelchair patient at Idaho State School and Hospital drowned Sunday morning in a tub of water at the institution.

The Canyon County coroner, said this morning he will rule the case of death as accidental drowning.

Keith Humphreys, the victim, was found by an attendant face down in a tub of water described as "scalding hot." The water faucets were turned on.

According to the Nampa chief of police, an attendant noticed water running under the closed bathroom door at 9:15 a.m. She called another attendant, a man, who investigated and found Humphreys.

The coroner said it appears another resident undressed Humphreys and assisted him into the tub before attendants arrived to help at the regular bath time.

Chief of police said two "water keys," supposedly used only by attendants to turn on water taps, were found in the bathroom. It has not been determined why the keys were there, he said.
