A 23-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with near-drownings Tuesday night that critically injured two young children in Kansas City, Kan.

The woman was booked into the Wyandotte County Jail on suspicion of attempted murder, but formal charges have not been filed.

Police were called to a house in the 2900 block of South 52nd Street about 5:50 p.m. Tuesday after a relative called police to report an emergency.

The two children, both under 5 years old, remained in critical condition Wednesday at a hospital, according to police.

Police were not expected to turn the case over to the Wyandotte County district attorney’s office until Thursday, according to a media advisory from prosecutors. The case would then be reviewed to determine whether charges should be filed.
