Tristan reportedly woke up to find her daughter unresponsive in the water-filled bathtub. She claimed she performed CPR, and an officer responded to the Round Rock home three minutes after she called 911.
According to KXAN, cell phone data indicated that Tristan texted for five minutes before there was an eight-minute pause in activity. She reportedly searched YouTube before calling 911 four minutes later.
