WHITEWATER TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A Whitewater Township grandmother was indicted with child endangering after police found her unresponsive in the bathtub and her infant grandson not breathing nearby.

Emergency crews responded to the residence in the 5100 block of State Route 128 in Whitewater Township on Oct. 3. First responders found Kathy Huff, 42, unresponsive in the bathtub and a 4-month-old boy not breathing, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office. Police on scene confirmed Huff was the child's grandmother.

A frantic call to 9-1-1  call was made after Bryce Huff returned home from the grocery store and found his wife and grandson in the home.

""I can't wake my wife up. I think she fell into the tub," said Huff. "The baby was floating in the tub with her. I'm trying to do c-p-r."

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

According to police records a deputy described 4-month old Killian Huff as grey, naked, wet and lifeless.

The baby was rushed to Children's Medical Center and is listed in critical condition.

Huff later admitted to investigators that she has purchased $20 worth of heroin and snorted it prior to the incident, according to court records. She is facing a felony child endangering charge.
