HOUSTON -

A 5-year-old girl drowned shortly after she got home from school on Wednesday.

Houston police said the girl went to her home at an apartment complex on Olympia near Westpark about 2:30 p.m.

The girl knew how to draw her on bath water, police said. She did that and got in the tub, officials said.

A short time later, the girl's father's live-in girlfriend checked on her and found her under water, investigators said.

The girlfriend immediately gave the girl CPR and paramedics were called to the scene.

The girl was taken to West Houston Medical Center, where she died. Her name has not been released.
