A 1-year-old child nearly drowned in the bathtub of her family's Bronx home after climbing into it and turning on the water.

The child, identified only as Leslie Nicole, crawled into the tub and turned on the water around 1:20 p.m., the Daily News reports. The tub overflowed, sending water raining down through the ceiling of the apartment downstairs. The baby's father discovered her only after a neighbor banged on the door to complain about the water.

The girl was rushed to Bronx-Lebanon Hospital, where she remains in critical condition.

The father has not been accused of any wrongdoing. At the hospital, the baby's uncle told the tabloid it was only an accident. "The little girl climbed in the tub and turned the water on herself," he insisted. "She didn’t know. She’s only a baby.”
