One Dead, Another Child Critical After Near Drowning
A one-year-old girl was pronounced dead at a local hospital, and her five-year-old sister in serious but stable condition, after their mother allegedly drowned them in the bathtub of their South L.A. home.
The children's mother has been detained by the child abuse unit.
The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a 7:30 a.m. radio call reporting a five-year-old and one-year-old unresponsive at 935 W 50th St.
Both children were in "grave condition" when taken to the California Hospital Medical Center.
Detectives are still investigating the report at this time.
