Baby critically injured after left unattended in tub in the Bronx, police say

CROTONA PARK, The Bronx (WABC) -- An 8-month-old girl is in critical condition after police say her mother left her unattended in a bathtub in the Bronx.

Authorities say the 23-year-old mother left her child in the bathtub with the water running in her third-floor apartment on Vyse Avenue in Crotona Park around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The mother then went to clean the apartment, officials said, and when she returned, the child was face down and floating in the bathtub.

She was rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital and later transferred to Montefiore Medical Center in critical condition.

The mother has been questioned by detectives, but so far, no charges have been filed.
