Police Investigate the Near Drowning of a Baby

Tyler investigators are trying to determine if the near-drowning of an 8-month old baby at an Aspen Place Apartment was an accident or something more.

Police say the baby was in bathwater, when a caregiver left the room. When they returned minutes later, the baby was non-responsive.

"Child protective services have been called out to verify whether or not the child has sustained injuries intentionally, or if there was some sort of home accident," said Sgt. Tom Deal with Tyler Police Department.

A Game Warden and the Smith County District Attorney's office are also involved in the case. The child is listed in fair condition.
