Southeast Side tot nearly drowns in bathtub

A 2-year-old girl nearly drowned in a bathtub Tuesday afternoon on the Southeast Side, authorities said.

Tucson Fire Capt. Tricia Tracy said the girl was transported by helicopter to an area hospital, but she did not know the girl’s condition.

The incident was reported about 4:30 p.m. at a home in the 7000 block of East Fair Meadows Loop, near the South Kolb Road interchange on Interstate 10.

Tracy said the mother, who has two other children, left the child unattended for less than a minute.

“There are lots of things a child can drown in aside from a swimming pool or a hot tub,” Tracy said. “A child can drown in as little as an inch of water.”

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
