LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a 2-year-old boy has nearly drowned in a Lincoln bathtub.

A police spokeswoman says the child’s stepmother reported stepping away from the tub for a couple minutes to check on another child Thursday night. The woman says the toddler was under the water when she returned.

Police spokeswoman Katie Flood says Officer Aaron Peth arrived at the home within minutes of a 911 call and gave the toddler CPR until medics arrived. The boy then was taken to a hospital.
