Police Say Mom Was Distracted by Facebook While Her Baby Drowned in Bathtub

WWe all know how consuming social media can be. I think many of us are guilty of staring at our screens more than we should, but social media has also become a way for many people, moms especially, to feel connected to a greater community.

Sadly, people tend to get distracted by social media, which is what one mother says happened when she left her 8 month old alone in a bathtub with the water running.

Her daughter drowned in the tub and now the mother is facing charges.
