Mom Arrested in Connection With Baby's Death

A 27-year-old Hartford mother has been arrested in connection with the death of her 1-year-old son, who was found unconscious in a bathtub in July and later died.

Tamara Santana has been charged with second-degree manslaughter, criminal negligent homicide and reckless endangerment and bond has been set at $1 million, according to police. She is in prison on unrelated charges and is on mental health watch.

Officials said the incident happened on Elmer Street in July.

The child was identified as Antonio Armando Delgado Jr. His first birthday was just four days before the tragic incident.

Police said his parents were home when it happened and tried to drive the boy to the hospital, but stopped for help when they saw firefighters on Sigourney Street.

The fire crew began CPR on the baby and then rushed the boy to Connecticut Children's Medical Center, but the child had suffered life-threatening injuries and was removed from life support.

The office of the medical examiner's death has not been determined.
