Police said the toddler’s mom, Brittanie Mae Miloshevsky, admitted to drinking late Sunday night, when she was found passed out at Golf The Round golf course in South Salt Lake, Deseret News reported.
Her minivan was nearby, partially submerged in a pond.
Miloshevsky told officers who arrived on scene that her little boy was still in the van, according to Fox 13. Divers went in the water multiple times to get the boy out. He was transported to the hospital and later died.
“The child was submerged for a substantial period of time in cold water,” the police affidavit said. “(Miloshevsky’s) clothing is completely soaked with water and it appears she was in the vehicle at the time it went into the water.”
The mom admitted she had been drinking and said she had driven to the golf course. Police are now looking into whether she had taken the van on a joyride. She has no known affiliation to the golf course.
Miloshevsky was charged with child abuse homicide, DUI resulting in serious injury, child endangerment and criminal mischief.
Officials said the pond is part of a wastewater plant, ABC 4 reported.
Police found a hole in a fence leading to the pond.
