This mother was in the middle of her laundry at the Crockett Apartments Wednesday night when she heard another mother screaming. It was her neighbor saying her 18 month old was in the shower unresponsive. Contreras with her motherly instincts rushed up the stairs to apartment 60 to give her CPR.

"We laid her down in the back of the truck me and this other girl was pushing down of the chest, and we tilted her head back I was giving her air in her mouth. "

Paramedics arrived on scene shortly after and rushed the 18 month old to hospital, but police say she didn't made it. Police say the 18 month old was in the bathtub with her sibling and her mother. The baby's sibling walked out of the bathroom into another room.
