LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police have arrested a woman on suspicion of murder in the drowning death of her 3-year-old son.

Police Lt. Ken Romine says the boy's mother, 30-year-old Christine Allen, called 911 just before 6:30 p.m. Saturday.

Firefighters tried to resuscitate him at the home in Rock Springs Vista Condos, near Buffalo and Vegas Dr. But he later was pronounced dead at Sunrise Hospital.

A preliminary investigation indicates Allen may have been experiencing a medical crisis when she allegedly drowned her son in the bathtub.

No other children were home at the time.

The toddler's name has not been released. The coroner's office has not released a cause of death.
