Baby gets hand caught in bathtub drain

- It was several hours of worry for a Long Island mother after her infant got her hand stuck in a bathtub drain.

It happened in Shirley on Tuesday morning. A 911 call was placed from the Rowlinson Drive home. 

Emergency Service Section Officers Steven Bardak, Mark Collins, James Jackson and Michael Viruet responded to the call and worked for approximately 20 minutes to cut out a chunk of the bathtub around the girl’s hand.

The child, with the chunk of bathtub still attached to her hand, was transported by Mastic Ambulance Company to Stony Brook University Hospital.

The four officers along with hospital personnel worked for two hours to remove the bathtub from the child’s hand.

The girl is expected to make a full recovery.
