Baby Nearly Drowns in Toilet
An infant had to be airlifted to a hospital for treatment after she nearly drowned in a toilet.
The baby girl, whose age has been given as being between six months and a year, was with an older sibling when she tumbled head first into the toilet in the bathroom of a home in the 8200 block of Laurel Canyon in Sun Valley, Los Angeles Police Department Lt. Scott Harrelson said, according to the Daily News.
The older child, who authorities estimate is about two years old, had locked the bathroom door and was screaming for help after the baby fell in the water. Their mother had to kick open the door to retrieve the infant from the toilet.
Emergency responders were able to get the baby breathing and making noises. The Los Angeles Fire Department took the infant to Children's Hospital Los Angeles for medical attention.
