Deputies: Palmyra mom left 8-month-old in bathtub alone, found unresponsive

Deputies in Wayne County have arrested a 24-year-old Palmyra mother after she left her 8-month-old baby alone in a bathtub.

Deputies say they were called to a residence on Conifer Dr. shortly before 7 pm on Saturday. When the call was placed to authorities, the baby was not breathing.

A neighbor was able to perform CPR and revive the child prior to the arrival of emergency personnel and medical technicians, deputies added.

Samantha M. Thomas, 24, of Palmyra was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and second-degree reckless endangerment.

She was arraigned in Palmyra Town Court and released on her own recognizance. The charges will be answered at a later date.

The baby was transported to an area hospital for evaluation, according to deputies.
