A newborn baby has died after drowning in a bathtub in a western Sydney house on Tuesday afternoon.
Emergency services were called to the house in Shalvey about 12.10pm following reports a baby was non-responsive in the home’s bathtub.
The eight-week-old was then taken to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead in a serious condition, but she couldn’t be saved.
Police will interview a 35-year-old woman who is currently in hospital undergoing a mental health assessment.
NCA NewsWire understands the woman is the child’s mother.
A report will be prepared for the coroner.
