Posted: Updated:

A baby was taken to the hospital Tuesday night after he nearly drowned in a bathtub.

It happened in the 400 block of West 8th Street near Chestnut Street just before 8:30 p.m.

Erie Police told Erie News Now that the 11 month old was taking a bath, and his parents were home at the time. A relative reportedly made the 911 call.

The boy was unconscious and not breathing when paramedics arrived.

He was rushed to UPMC Hamot and reportedly transferred to Pittsburgh for further treatment.

Detectives interviewed the boy's father at length Tuesday night as police investigate.
