A toddler has died and her mother is reportedly being questioned about the events leading up to the child’s apparent drowning in a bathtub inside the family’s Northeast Philadelphia home.

The 2-year-old girl was found unconscious just before 6 p.m. on Friday by her father inside the home along the 1000 block of Wilbur Street, police said.

The father called for help and was holding the baby in his arms when paramedics arrived, law enforcement sources said.

The toddler was rushed to Jefferson Torresdale Hospital and pronounced dead a short time later.

Sources say that homicide detectives believe the mother, who apparently has been suffering from mental distress, may have drowned the child.

The mother is now being questioned at the Philadelphia Police Homicide Unit.
