WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A Waterloo man faces serious child endangerment charges after he allegedly left a baby unattended in a bathtub of water.

D'amontre Burt was arrested Wednesday for an incident in November in cedar falls.

Burt had been taking care of his girlfriend's son at the time.

Police say he admitted to filling the tub and leaving a 20-month-old alone in the water.

The child was taken to the hospital hours later because he was not breathing properly. He was then airlifted to the hospital in Iowa City.

The child was able to recover.
