LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska officials have taken temporary custody of a Lincoln couple’s children after the man’s 2-year-old son nearly drowned in a bathtub.

The boy’s stepmother told authorities she stepped away from the tub for two or three minutes Thursday night and found the boy under the water when she returned. The boy was taken to an Omaha hospital.

Online court records don’t show that any criminal charges have been filed in the case.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1P7OWXz ) that a judge ordered the boy and five other children, ages 15 months to 13 years, placed in foster care. Court records show a hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
