The child drowned while picking flowers.
Inspiration for the death of Ophelia?
Other interesting Tudor deaths here too.

Thank God the incidents of unfortunate individuals dying from having their testicles crushed while playing Christmas games has become extremely rare.

IIRC, the incidence of people falling into cesspits/ latrines (though fortunately not drowning) occurred as recently as Berkshire Midsummer festival within the last 3 decades or so....
