A man was arrested Tuesday after allegedly trying to drown his daughter at a summer camp in the San Bernardino Mountains, authorities said.
Deputies were called to Pali Adventures in Running Springs at noon, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.
They found that Timothy Ryan Shipman, 42, of San Bernardino “sneaked into the secure facility, locked his 5-year-old son in his vehicle and attempted to drown his 2-year-old daughter in a pond at the facility. ‘ said the sheriff’s department.
Camp staff took Shipman’s children and cared for them until firefighters and deputies arrived, according to the department.
The children were taken to a hospital and were stable on Wednesday, MPs said. Shipman was also taken to a hospital for treatment before being handed over to authorities.
Detectives served a search warrant at Shipman’s home “and obtained evidence related to the investigation,” lawmakers said. What kind of evidence has not been disclosed.
He was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and posted on $1 million bail.
