WEST VALLEY CITY — A baby girl was in critical condition Thursday after she fell into a bucket of water and was revived at an area hospital.

The girl reportedly pulled herself up to a 5-gallon bucket of water and fell in head first, West Valley City Police Sgt. Jason Hauer said. The girl was at her home near 7200 West and Bendixon Drive when the accident occurred about 4 p.m.

Paramedics transported the girl to Pioneer Valley Hospital where she was revived, Hauer said. She was then taken by medical helicopter to Primary Children's Hospital in critical condition.

No other information about the incident or the baby's condition were available Thursday night.
