A 1 year old girl is in critical condition after she was found submerged in water in a bathtub in her Bronx apartment.

The girl was found just after 1 p.m. Wednesday by her father, who was alerted by downstairs neighbors complaining about a water leak at the Selwyn Avenue building in the Morrisania section.

When the neighbors went upstairs to say they were getting water into their apartment, the father ran to the bathroom and found her daughter in the tub.

He picked her up and ran her to Bronx Lebanon Hospital, which is a block away from their apartment.

Police say they have talked to the father and no charges have been filed at this time.
