HOUSTON (AP) — A Houston mother whose 7-year-old son almost drowned in an apartment pool has been arrested.

Houston police say Linda Harden faces charges of injury to a child by omission after her son almost drowned Thursday. Police say the boy suffered head trauma and appears to have previous injuries. He remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Police say the 33-year-old Harden initially said that she and her four children jumped over the gate to get to the pool.

Investigators say Harden later said she left her three youngest children, ages 2 to 4 years old, alone in her apartment while she took her 7-year-old to swim. Police say she told investigators she ignored signs stating the pool was closed when she helped her son over the fence.
