5 year old drowns in bathtub

Early Monday morning, the Navajo County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call of a 5-year old boy not breathing at a home in Overgaard. Officials say they arrived to find Donavon Lanser deceased from drowning. Deputies learned the child possibly had a history of seizure like episodes. During the night, he vomited, which was cause for his mother, Rebecca Savage, to give him a bath. When she returned to the bathroom from changing the bedding, she found Donavon under the water and unresponsive. Both Rebecca and the boy’s stepfather, Curtis Harvey, have been interviewed by investigators. An autopsy is being conducted today to determine the exact cause of death. No charges have been filed.
