PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- A mother is behind bars on child neglect charges after her 14-month-old daughter drowned in a neighbor's goldfish pond.
Homeowner Larry Kruger pulled the child from the water after her 5-year-old brother knocked on his door Wednesday evening.
Authorities say 31-year-old Jennifer Lynn Eiland had been searching for the toddler, who had wandered away from home. Someone called 911 and Eiland and neighbors began CPR.
Eiland remains in jail. Her other children -- ages 3 to 8 -- were taken by the Department of Children and Families. Authorities say Eiland was arrested May 21 on child welfare endangerment charges in Orange Beach, Ala.
The newspaper reports the father of children works offshore in Louisiana as a journeyman and wasn't home when the child drowned.
