An baby boy drown in a bathtub at a home on the northwest side Saturday evening.

Oro Valley police officers the first to arrive, just after 5 p.m., at a home in the 9000 block of North Oracle Road between West Hardy Road and West Calle Concordia, and began performing CPR after the 12-month-old was found unresponsive in a bathtub, said Capt. Josh Hurguy, spokesman for the Golder Ranch Fire Department.

The baby was not breathing and did not have a pulse when paramedics arrived. Hurguy did not know how long the infant had been in the water.

The child was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, Hurguy said.

“Any time children are around water don’t leave them unattended,” Hurguy said.
