A Texas mother was arrested after police found her 7-month-old daughter unresponsive near an overflowing bathtub, police said.
The woman, 29, left her daughter unattended in a bathtub in a San Antonio home on Nov. 14, according to a police news release. She left the room to go to the kitchen “for several minutes” while the water was still running, the release said.
When she returned, she found the tub flooded and her daughter unresponsive, police said.
After a call was made about a drowning, officers responded to the home, where they found the woman performing CPR on the child, according to the release.
“Officers took over life saving measures until EMS arrived,” police said. The child was then transported to a local hospital in unknown condition.
The woman was arrested for reckless injury to a child, police said.
Police said on Nov. 16 the child remained in the hospital and is in critical condition.
