Man attempts to drown toddler


Florida deputies say a man tried to drown a toddler Monday night in an apartment complex swimming pool.

Officials with the Orange County Sheriff's Office said deputies were called to the Lake Sherwood Apartments just before 10:30 p.m.

Deputies said Wilkens Ordena had tried to drown a toddler in the apartment complex pool.

Family members jumped in the pool and were able to pull the child out, but Ordena fled the area before deputies arrived.

Deputies said Ordena returned while deputies were still on scene and then attempted to flee again, ramming deputies' patrol vehicles and the apartment complex exit gate. 

Investigators said he is a relative of the toddler, but they are not saying exactly what the relationship is.
