Ten Month Old Drowns At Home

A ten month old drowned this morning in a bathtub. The young boy was being bathed by an older sibling while the victim’s mother slept. Tragically the youngster was left alone for a very short time and drowned.

Sacramento Firefighters responded to the home in the 1400 block of Janrick Avenue, at 8:20 A.M. They arrived on scene in five minutes. Firefighter/Paramedics began resuscitation efforts and transported the boy to a local hospital where he died.

This is a very sad reminder of the dangers of youngsters and water. In 2005 the number two cause of accidental death for children under the age of fourteen was accidental drowning.
