CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — A South Texas woman has been charged with child endangerment after her 6-year-old stepson drowned at a beach while in her care.
Corpus Christi police on Tuesday arrested 47-year-old Laura Day over the death of Taylor Syring. Emergency personnel were not able to revive Taylor after an outing last Friday near Bob Hall Pier. Autopsy results are pending.
Police say Day told them she let the boy remove his life jacket while swimming in shallow water.
Nueces County Jail records Wednesday did not list Day, whose bond was set at $50,000, as still being in custody. No information was immediately available on an attorney for her.
Corpus Christi police did not immediately return a message Wednesday.
A service for Taylor will be held Saturday.
