Police continue investigating near drowning

SAN BENITO — A baby boy is recovering today after nearly drowning in a bathtub Thursday afternoon.

Paramedics and police were called at around 2:45 p.m. to the Vista Park Apartments complex on Cornejo Drive for a possible drowning.

When they arrived they found the baby — who Police Chief Michael Galvan said is about 8 to 10 months old — un-responsive.

The boy’s mother said she left him alone in the bathtub for about a minute, Galvan said.

When she returned, the boy was floating face-up in the tub and wasn’t breathing.

Galvan said the child had drowned but was revived.

Paramedics rushed the boy to a local hospital, where he is listed in critical condition.

Police will continue to investigate this incident.
