Girl Drowns in Bathtub


BALDWIN CITY, Kan. (AP) An 8-year-old northeast Kansas girl with a history of health problems apparently drowned while bathing in what authorities believe was an accident.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says the girl was found unconscious just before 10 p.m. Thursday at a home east of Baldwin City. She was later pronounced dead at a hospital in Lawrence.

Sheriff’s officials say a neighbor and emergency responders unsuccessfully performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on the girl.

The girl lived with her grandparents. Her name was not being released until relatives could be notified.
