CRESTON, MT (KECI/CNN) – A Montana family is grieving after a baby fell into a bucket of water and drowned.

Authorities say Mariella Dalimata tripped and fell into a bucket that was being used for mopping.

The girl’s aunt, Brooke Schwab, hopes her family’s tragedy can be a lesson for others.

“Even if it’s just an ice cream bucket with water in it, dump it [out]. It can happen so fast,” Schawb said. “We’re completely traumatized. Words can’t even describe how shocking it is it us.”

Mariella’s second birthday was just 10 days away.
