A young man in France was taken to a hospital after finding his pregnant wife dead in the bathtub.

Saint-Martin-d’Heres police said that they have launched an investigation after the husband found his 21-year-old pregnant wife submerged in water in the bathtub.

According to the initial finding, the woman, who was days away from giving birth to her first child, was electrocuted after her cell phone fell into the water while she was taking a bath.

The grieving husband told police that on Sunday when he came home from work, he knocked on the door but nobody answered.

He panicked and broke down the door only to find his wife unconscious in the bathtub full of water.

He immediately called for help.

Paramedics who arrived at the scene tried to revive the woman but were unsuccessful.

The unborn child also could not be saved.

The husband was taken to the capital after suffering from shock.

The woman’s charging cell phone was found near the bathtub.

Police did not reveal the identity of the woman.
