MIRAMAR (CBSMiami) -- Miramar Police were again called to the home of a woman accused of trying to drown her baby but this time they found a woman unconscious.

According to CBS4 news partners The Miami Herald, police said the woman died after being rushed to Memorial Hospital Miramar.

Police would not confirm if the woman was Inakesha Armour, who is facing attempted murder charges in connection to the near drowning.  They only thing they could confirm is that they received a 911 call about an unconscious woman inside the Armour home located in the 5300 block of Southwest 155th Avenue.

The paper was unable to reach  Armour's attorney for comment Tuesday evening.

The baby's father Conlan Armour, 30, and grandmother Grace Ann Brooks, 56, were arrested in October on charges of failure to report child abuse and child neglect in connection to the near drowning.

Police said they were both charged with child neglect "in the form of culpable negligence due to their lack of willingness to protect the baby."

On July 1st, baby Cayden Armour was rushed to Joe DiMaggio hospital after his mother, Inakesha Armour, allegedly threw him in their Riviera Isles community lake and then fished him out several minutes later.

He remains in the hospital, unconscious and on a ventilator, according police.

The baby's mother told police she was suffering from postpartum depression and hadn't been taking her medication.

Inakesha Armour was charged with two counts of attempted murder because investigators said this isn't the first time she tried to kill her baby. A month before, she told police at the time, she had fed the baby adult cough syrup and tried to smother him with a pillow.

Armour had been released on bond on August 1st.
