( Over-the-Rhine ) - Police were called to the 1600 block of Walnut Street around 5am on New Year's Eve Day for a baby floating in the bathtub. The 7-week-old was taken to Cincinnati Children's Hospital where, at last word, she's still recovering.

Investigators say her mother, 27-year-old Jessica Whitehead, was in the bathtub with the baby at the time, but that she somehow lost consciousness. Whitehead was charged by police a few days later, and on Tuesday, she was indicted by a grand jury.

Whitehead is accused of attempted murder, felonious assault, and two counts of child endangering. She's being held on $250,000 bond.
