Baby drowns in tub at Dallas apartment

Posted: Updated:
An 11-month-old girl drowned Wednesday night in Dallas after she and her 2-year-old brother were left unattended in a bathtub, according to police.

The children were playing in the tub at an apartment in the 1300 block of Cockrell Hill Road. The tub’s drain was open with the water running while the children’s mother was in another room.

When the mother didn’t hear the children playing anymore, she went into the bathroom and saw that the drain had been pushed in and water was filling the tub.

The baby girl was not breathing and was taken to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The 2-year-old is said to be OK.
