A 1-year-old girl is in stable condition after nearly
drowning in a Liberty Township home on Sunday.
The Butler County Sheriff's Office says the child fell head
first into a container of water around 11 a.m. while alone in a bathroom.
The mother, 33-year-old Riddhi Patel, was reportedly tending
to another child at the time and walked into the bathroom to find the infant face-down
in the container.
Investigators say she had been away for four to five
minutes before finding the infant.
Patel immediately called 911 and followed the emergency
dispatcher's CPR instructions, according to police. The infant was revived but had
shallow breathing when first responders arrived.
She was transported to Cincinnati Children's Hospital where
she is listed in stable condition.
Investigators with the Butler County Sheriff's Office say
they are continuing to look into the incident.
