Elk Grove infant taken to hospital after nearly drowning in bathtub

A 9-month-old girl has been taken to Kaiser South Medical Center after she was found submerged in bathtub.

Deputy Chief John Michelni of the Cosumnes Fire Department said crews were called to a home on Springhurst Drive in Elk Grove about 6:10 p.m. and found the child, who was unresponsive and having difficulty breathing.

He said the youngster was in the bathtub when the mother stepped away for a couple of minutes and returned to find the child submerged in the water.

Michelini said this is the second infant drowning or near drowning incident in the Cosumnes district and the fifth reported countywide within a week.
