(KMOV)-- A mother is charged after her six year old ends up in the ER with hypothermia.
   
Kellee Medina, 27, is charged with Child Abuse and Endangering the Welfare of a Child.

Police said the 6-year-old girl lost consciousness twice when her mother allegedly put her in cold bathwater as punishment.

Police said Medina then took her daughter to the emergency room after her daughter blacked out in their apartment.

Hospital staff noticed other bruises on the child and called police.

According to investigators, the girl's core body temperature was down to 92.4 degrees.

Police say the girl is recovering. She and her two younger brothers, ages 3 and 4, are in protective custody with another family member.

Medina is jailed on a $20,000 cash only bond.
