KATY, Texas - A 2-year-old child was found underwater and unconscious in a hot tub at a Katy home, nearly 5 miles away from where a child nearly drowned in a residential pool.
The incident was reported in the 3500 block of Paintbrush Dawn Court.
Deputies said there was a pool party happening when adults lost sight of the small child.
The child was found submerged and unconscious in the hot tub adjacent to the pool, deputies said. There is no word on how long the child was under water.
Deputies said the child was rushed to the hospital, where she remains in critical condition.
Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said this can not continue and said that parents should be more vigilant.
