Child Nearly Drowns

A Colorado Springs boy is hospitalized in critical condition after nearly drowning in a bathtub. Colorado Springs police Sergeant Randy Johnson says the 15-month-old boy was left unattended in a tub at the Timberlane Apartments when he went under water Sunday afternoon.

The boy wasn't breathing when officers arrived. The parents were not home at the time, but an unrelated adult male was in the apartment. Johnson says the near drowning might be a ``tragic accident'' or a ``criminal offense.''

The case has been turned over to the major crimes unit. The names of the parents and child and the parents have not been released.
