SALT LAKE CITY -- A 7-month-old girl left unattended in a bathtub last week has died, authorities say.
Cottonwood Heights Police Sgt. Mark Askerlund says the infant was declared brain dead and her parents chose to remove her from life-support machines Sunday afternoon. She died a short time later.
Askerlund says the girl's mother briefly left the child unattended Tuesday to get her clothes while giving her a bath. Askerlund says she found the child underwater and unresponsive when she returned.
Police were treating the incident as an accident but are sending results of their findings to the Salt Lake County District Attorney's Office to review to determine if any charges should be filed.
The mother's name has not been released.
