The parents of the 3-year-old who came close to drowning last year near the Slash Pine Circle apartments in Punta Gorda were arrested Tuesday for alleged child neglect.

The girl was found face down in the lake at the apartment complex on Nov. 20, 2017. A witness removed her from the water and began lifesaving efforts while 911 was called. When EMS arrived, the child was transported to Bayfront Punta Gorda and later to All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg.
