Ellenton, Florida -- Sarasota deputies are investigating the death of a toddler in Ellenton.

The Sheriff's Office says 19-month-old Ellery Jackson was taken to the hospital after her mother, Alyssa Jackson, found the girl unresponsive in the bath tub.  Ellery was pronounced deceased at the hospital.

Jackson was reportedly bathing Ellery and her 3-year-old brother when she left the two to get something from another part of the house. 

When Jackson returned, she discovered Ellery was underwater and called 911.  

Detectives say at this time, the death does not appear to be suspicious.
