DECATUR — A 10-month-old Decatur girl remained in the pediatric intensive care unit of HSHS St. John’s Hospital in Springfield following a near-drowning in a dog bowl Sunday.

The baby was rushed to the hospital where she was still being cared for Tuesday, according to detective Sgt. Steve Carroll with Decatur police. He said the circumstances of how the baby came to be injured are being investigated by detectives from the police department’s juvenile division.

The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services did not immediately return a call seeking comment Tuesday afternoon.
