LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A 19-month-old boy is improving from nearly drowning Sunday in a bathtub and is expected to recover, a Lufkin Police spokesman said.
Police responded to the call on the 1400 block of Sayers Street when a mother said she found her son face down in the tub.
According to the report, the mother was bathing her son when she left the child to check a loud noise in the house. She said she found a shelf that had fallen in the laundry room and put it back up.
When she returned, the child was face down in the tub and unresponsive.
