SOUTH SALT LAKE — An 18-month-old boy died on Monday after suffering critical injuries when his mother crashed a vehicle into a pond at a South Salt Lake golf course late Sunday night, police said.

Police responded to reports of criminal mischief and a vehicle driving on a golf course in the area of 3300 South and 600 West about 11:15 p.m., according to the South Salt Lake Police Department.

When officers arrived, they found a hole in a fence near the Golf the Round golf course. A woman described as incoherent was standing nearby, and a minivan was partially submerged in a pond with the top showing, police said.

When officers realized a baby boy was still inside the vehicle, they jumped into the water and rescued the child.

“Officers reacted quickly, they responded, they go into the pond, they have to go in completely underneath to try and feel around to try and see if they can locate a child that’s inside the car, they’re able to extract the child from the car," said South Salt Lake police spokeswoman Danielle Croyle.

The infant was taken to Primary Children's Hospital in critical condition where he later died from his injuries.

The woman, identified as 28-year-old Brittanie Mae Miloshevsky, also received medical attention; although the extent of her injuries was not clear. Police said she is the baby's mother.

Miloshevsky was arrested and being booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of criminal mischief, child abuse, child endangerment, and DUI with serious bodily injury, KSL TV's Felicia Martinez reported.
