NEW YORK (AP) - The NYPD is investigating after a 1-year-old girl nearly drowned in a bathtub in the Bronx.

Police say the father found the baby submerged after being alerted by a downstairs neighbor complaining of a leak around 1 p.m. Wednesday.

The father rushed the child to the hospital where she was listed in critical condition.

According to WNBC-TV, the father told the neighbor he had stepped away briefly to go to the kitchen.

Police say they talked to the father and no charges were immediately filed.

Neighbors described the man as a good father.
