A Las Vegas woman has been accused of murder after calling police to report that her 2-year-old daughter had drowned in the bathtub.
An officer who responded to the call Saturday found the girl face up in the bathtub, which was full of water, Las Vegas said. The girl was fully clothed. The name of the woman and her daughter weren’t released. The mother was arrested on suspicion of murder.
The 911 operator was unable to persuade the woman to rescue the child from the water and administer CPR, police said. It took several minutes for the woman to answer the door when the first officer arrived, KVVU reported.
