Home Day Care Where Baby Nearly Drowned Not Registered
A 2-month-old boy remains in a Temple hospital in critical condition a day after nearly drowning at an unregistered home daycare in Killeen.
The infant was left unattended in a bathtub Thursday morning while the owner of the home in the 1900 block of Bachelor Button left the room to check on other children. When she returned, the owner found the child lying face-down in the water. Paramedics arrived around 11:20 AM and performed CPR before transporting the child to a hospital.
According to our news partner KWTX, the Department of Family Protective Services has no record of a registered daycare facility in the 1900 block of Bachelor Button.
Police have not released the identity of the woman who owns and operates the daycare. She told officers she left the child alone to investigate a noise from another room where six other children in her care were playing.
