Killeen Baby in Critical Condition After Nearly Drowning
Killeen police are investigating after 2-month-old boy nearly drowned at a home daycare Wednesday morning.
According to a preliminary investigation, the 48-yaer-old owner of the home in the 3000 block of Bachelor Button was bathing the child when she heard noise coming from another room where toddlers were playing. She left the infant in the bathtub to investigate, then returned to find the baby face-down in the water.
Police arrived at 11:21 AM and found the woman performing CPR on the child. An officer continued with CPR until Killeen Fire Department paramedics arrived and took over. The child was transported by air to the McLane’s Children’s Hospital in Temple in critical condition.
Police have not released the name of the caretaker.
