NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ A 1-year-old girl who nearly drowned in a bucket of dog food and water was in satisfactory condition Sunday at General Hospital, authorities said.

Lillian Lindsey discovered her daughter, Kayla, halfway submerged Saturday in a large bucket of dog food mixed with water, detective Frank Pierce said.

The child was taken to the hospital, where she was in satisfactory condition Sunday, nursing supervisor Audrey Farrell said.

The baby was being kept for observation and probably would be released the first part of the week, said nursing supervisor Esther Alexander.
