Tucson woman held in child's near drowning

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A Tucson woman is facing a felony child abuse charge after a baby girl she was caring for was found floating in a bathtub.

Tucson police say 27-year-old Zada Davis was arrested and booked into Pima County Jail on Tuesday in the near drowning of 10-month-old Winter Breeze Azure.

The girl is hospitalized in critical condition.

Firefighters arrived at the scene of the apartment on North Campbell Avenue at about 2:45 p.m. say the girl was unconscious and not breathing.

Detectives say Davis, who was caring for two other kids including her own, left the child alone with the water running for about 10 minutes.

Police say the other children, ages 7 and 8 months, were not injured.
