A Dallas woman who was allegedly distracted by Facebook has been charged after the 3-year-old girl she was supposed to be watching drowned in a pool.
According to Dallas County jail records, 37-year-old Kariasa Thomas was being held Wednesday on a charge of reckless injury to a child.
Officials said 3-year-old Kanyce Giddings couldn't swim and drowned on June 22.
Police said Thomas was watching a friend's four children, including Kanyce, at an apartment complex pool that closed for the evening. An affidavit said Thomas told police she used her phone to log on to Facebook for about 15 minutes and played with her dog.
The victim's body was later found in the pool.
Thomas was booked Saturday with bond set at $25,000.
