Topeka police say a 36-year-old woman with severe physical disabilities drowned in a whirlpool bath at a group home.

Police Sgt. Jay Juhghans says the accident happened Thursday evening at Sunflower Support, a small home for people with severe physical disabilities.

Juhghans says a caregiver turned away momentarily while the woman was in the pool and she slipped into the water for only a short time.

Staff at the home attempted to resuscitate the woman but they and first responders were unable to revive her before she was taken to a Topeka hospital.
