Child Drowns While Babysitter, Kariasa Thomas, Checks Facebook

Kariasa Thomas was reportedly reading Facebook while a three year old child, whom she was babysitting, drowned in a pool on June 22.

Thomas, 37, was supposed to be watching a friend's four children at an apartment complex pool in Dallas, Texas, notes the Associated Press.

According to court papers, Thomas told police that she logged on to Facebook with her phone for about 15 minutes and played with her dog.

However, that's all the time it took for toddler Kanyce Gidding to drown in the pool.

Thomas was arrested and booked into the Dallas County Jail on Saturday on a $25,000 bond.

She has been charged with reckless injury to a child.
