(KFI) -- An 8-year-old boy was hospitalized in stable condition today after his mother attempted to drown him in the pool of a Palmdale apartment complex, a sheriff's deputy said.
Allaire McDougall, 33, is suspected of trying to drown the boy in the pool of the Monte Vista apartments in the 2500 block of East Olive Drive around 7:30 p.m. Thursday, said Los Angeles County sheriff's Deputy Peter Gomez.
Witnesses said the woman pushed the child under water while saying, ``It's the end of the world; I have to let you go,'' CBS2 reported.
Bystanders rescued the boy, Gomez said.
The case was being investigated by the sheriff's Special Victims Bureau.
