Mom charged with attempted murder after 2 children nearly drown

KANSAS CITY, Kan. - The mother of two children who almost drowned this week has been charged with two counts of attempted murder.

The Wyandotte County district attorney announced the charges against 23-year-old Johnna Green on Thursday.

Green's two daughters, ages 1 and 4, were rushed to the hospital Tuesday after they were both found unconscious in a home in Kansas City, Kan. They are still in critical condition.

Green allegedly "held J.T. underwater until she was unresponsive," then did the same to J.G., according to court documents.
