6-Month-Old Drowns in Bathtub While Mother Was on Facebook

RENO, Texas - According to reports from CBSDFW.com, a Parker County mother is in jail after her 6-month-old daughter drowned in the bathtub while unsupervised.

On June 13, Cheyenne Summer Stuckey, 21, reportedly left her daughter unsupervised in the bathtub with the water running when she was distracted by another child, a loud television, and Facebook Messenger.

CBSDFW reports that Stuckey said she left her daughter alone for just a few minutes. A sheriff's investigation concluded that Stuckey was on Facebook for nearly 20 minutes while the child was left alone.

When Stuckey realized she had forgotten about her daughter, she raced to check on her. That is when she found the child floating unresponsive, face down in the tub.

She tried to attempt CPR but told officers she did not know how. Emergency personnel attempted CPR as well but were unsuccessful.

The daughter was transported to Azle hospital where she was pronounced dead.

CBSDFW also reports that the other children in the home were removed and placed in foster care.

Stuckey was booked into the Parker County Jail and charged with Injury to a Child. No bond has been set.
