A toddler from small town of Gold Canyon in Pinal County is in critical condition after nearly drowning in a bathtub.

Pinal County sheriff's spokesman Tim Gaffney says the 1-year-old girl's mother found her unresponsive in the bathtub just after 7 p.m. on Wednesday. Gaffney says a neighbor who heard the mother screaming ran to help and was performing CPR when deputies arrived.

The child is hospitalized in extremely critical condition. Gaffney says detectives will investigate the circumstances.

Gold Canyon is east of Apache Junction.
