HOUSTON—Houston police are investigating the bathtub drowning of a 5-year-old girl in west Houston.

It happened at about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday in the 11200 block of  Olympia after the child had come home from school.  

She drew water by herself as she was taught, investigators said.  After several minutes, the child’s father’s live-in girlfriend went to check on the child and found her under water.  Police said CPR was immediately performed on the child and HFD paramedics were called to the scene. 

The child was taken to West Houston Medical Center where she died. 

Her identity has not been released.
