FD: 8-month-old girl dies after being found in a toilet in Arizona

An eight-month-old girl has died after she was found in a toilet Wednesday afternoon in a Phoenix home, according to the Phoenix Fire Department.

Firefighters responded to a home around 1:30 p.m.

The girl was taken to Phoenix Children's hospital in "extremely critical condition," but did not survive. She was apparently found in the toilet by a family member.

Phoenix fire says the infant was being watched by her 16-year-old sister. A three-year-old boy was also in the home at the time.
