A 10-year-old child is in extremely critical condition after nearly drowning in a bathtub Thursday.

Lt. Cody Stromberg with the Herriman Police Department said officers responded to a possible drowning at 11:18 a.m. in the area of 12500 S. Moonlite Hill.

The child's mother reported the kid had been feeling ill. She had the child take a bath. The mother told police when she returned to check on the child, they were face down in water.

The mother and medical personnel administered CPR.

Stromberg says the child was flown to Primary Children's Hospital in extremely critical condition.

Police don't suspect foul play and believe this was a "tragic accident."
