INDEPENDENCE, Ky. - No charges will be immediately filed after a 3-year-old girl died in a Northern Kentucky residence Thursday morning.
An autopsy performed Friday revealed nothing that will result in charges being filed immediately, but detectives say they are now following up on unanswered questions in the case.
Officials say the girl somehow fell and was found inside a bathtub at 10261 Meadow Glen Drive in Independence at about 10:56 a.m. Thursday. Initial reports said the child, whose name has not yet been released, was involved in a near drowning.
Authorities are still investigating information about what led to the incident.
Captain Tony Lucas of the Independence Police Department says a nanny was home at the time of the incident, and that the death is being treated as an accident.
Emergency crews originally transported the child to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Edgewood, Ky. for treatment, but a medical helicopter was called to move the child to Children's Hospital in Cincinnati. The child was pronounced dead Thursday afternoon.
Authorities have not released any additional details at this time.
