AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say a 1-year-old child has died after being found submerged in a bathtub in an Avondale home. Avondale firefighters were called Sunday afternoon about a possible drowning.

They administered CPR on the child, who was then transported to a hospital in Goodyear in extremely critical condition. Hospital staff pronounced the child dead a short time later.

Investigators say the child’s parents and siblings were home at the time. Police are now looking into what led to the drowning.
