LAKE LILLIAN -- An 11-month-old boy found not breathing in a bathtub Wednesday evening was revived by his mother, taken by ambulance to Rice Memorial Hospital and then airlifted to the University of Minnesota Children's Hospital.

The child had been in the tub with an older sibling, Hartog said. The mother performed CPR to revive the child.
