GOLDEN GATE ESTATES, Fla. - Brand new reports detail the frantic moments right after deputies arrive on scene of a call about a baby drowning in the Golden Gate Estates.
A relative of the mother tells WINK News 25-year-old Randi MacLeod is devastated after loosing her fiance last month in a car accident, and her baby Tuesday.
When deputies got to the home they say MacLeod answered the door holding 15-month-old Ava Slaby lifeless in her arms.
According to reports, the baby had a bluish/green color with no pulse and no air coming from her mouth. Multiple deputies tried to save the baby's life with CPR and compressions, which seemed to be working. Reports say the child's normal color came back and her face was warm; however, she still wasn't breathing and was taken to the hospital by EMS, where she later died.
MacLeod told deputies she has no family locally, but the child's grandmother lives just a few miles away.
Pamela Slaby, the mother of MacLeod's deceased fiance tells WINK News both MacLeod and her son were into drugs. She says she got a call from MacLeod frantic that Ava wasn't breathing after she left her in the tub for a minute alone. The grandmother tells us she is speaking with investigators today.
The Department of Children and Families explains they have been working with the family and have been to MacLeod's home before because of substance abuse issues.
According to the landlord, MacLeod just moved into the estates home a week prior.
