A UAE baby girl almost died when she drowned in a bucket of water in Sharjah, according to Al Bayan newspaper.
The 15-month-old toddler is in the intensive care unit at the Al Qasimi Hospital.
The girl fell into the bucket placed by her family to collect water leaking from a malfunctioning airconditioner.
“The girl, who was left unattended by her family, fell head-first and got stuck in the plastic bucket full of water,” said Sharjah police.
The family, who lives in Al Rumaqiya district, found the girl unconscious and rescued her from the brink of death.
