SE Side tot nearly drowns in bathtub

Citizen Staff Writer



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.”

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
