DALLAS (AP) — A Dallas woman who allegedly was distracted by Facebook has been charged after a 3-year-old girl she was supposed to watch drowned in a pool.

Dallas County jail records show 37-year-old Kariasa Thomas was being held Wednesday on a charge of reckless injury to a child.

Officials say Kanyce Giddings couldn’t swim and drowned on June 22.

Police say Thomas was watching a friend’s four children, including Kanyce, at an apartment complex pool that closed for the evening. An affidavit says Thomas told police she used her phone to log on to Facebook for about 15 minutes, plus played with her dog.

The victim’s body was found in the pool.

Thomas was booked Saturday with bond set at $25,000. No attorney could immediately be located for her Wednesday.
