A grandfather is working to get custody of his three grandchildren months after 14-month-old Kimberlyn Torres died after drowning in a bathtub while he was watching the kids.

The death has been ruled an accident and no charges have been filed.

The children were taken from the home by Child Protective Services immediately after the death.

According to Texas Family and Child Protective Services, 58 children have died from drowning in Texas this year alone.
