Mom On Facebook While Child Drowns

A Front Range, Colorado mother was scheduled for arraignment last week in the death of her 13-month-old son in September of last year.

Shannon Johnson, 34, reportedly admitted to police that she was on Facebook while her son was drowning in the bathtub. Johnson reportedly told police her son was playing in the bathtub. She had been checking him regularly, but didn't hear him for a while. When she checked on the baby, she found him sideways with his face in the water, reports say.

She pulled the boy from the tub and called 911. The child was airlifted to Children's Hospital, but was pronounced dead later. The autopsy said the baby died of anoxic brain injury, cardiac arrest and drowning, according to reports.
