The infant who was found in a bathtub with his unresponsive grandmother passed away Friday, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office.

Four-month-old Killian Huff had been in critical condition for the past two weeks at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

Kathy Huff, 42, admitted to snorting heroin while babysitting her grandson on Oct. 3, court records show. She is charged with child endangerment and could face additional charges, according to Mike Robison with the sheriff's office.

In a frantic 911 call, Kathy’s husband said he found his grandson floating in the water and his wife unresponsive when he returned to the home, located in the 5100 block of State Route 128.

A first responder described Killian as grey, naked, wet and lifeless, according to court documents.

Whitewater Township EMS started the life saving process on the infant and Huff was administered Naloxone.

"Huff then advised the last thing she recalled was running the bath water an then waking up to squad personnel assisting her," court documents state. Huff told police she had purchased $20 of heroin earlier in the day. 

A judge on Friday set Huff's bond at $200,000 for the child endangerment charge. She is housed in the Hamilton County Jail.
