Drowning can happen in an instant
A baby boy died at Cook Children’s Medical Center Monday morning after firefighters responded to a drowning call at a Fort Worth home, authorities said.
The infant was identified as Samuel Symonds, who was pronounced dead at 6:31 a.m. at the Fort Worth hospital, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office. A ruling on his death is pending an autopsy.
Firefighters responded to the scene shortly before 6 a.m. in the 2400 block of Shalon Avenue in east Fort Worth.
The baby, who was born on Jan. 22, had been in a bathtub, authorities said.
Authorities did not release any other details.
Child Protective Services officials are investigating, said CPS spokeswoman Marissa Gonzales in a Monday email.
Another child remains with the parents, Gonzales said.
