A baby who was feared dead after falling into the Thames River when her mother apparently fainted died Wednesday after hours of battling for life.

The 10-month-old girl, along with her mother and older sister, plunged into the river in Oxfordshire, England, as the family was feeding ducks.

The mother and sister survived but the baby was pulled out of the water and airlifted to John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, where she was declared dead.

But then doctors heard a faint heartbeat.

For hours the little girl clung to life in a critical condition — but police confirmed her death late Wednesday night.

There have been conflicting reports on how the accident happened.

One man who lives close to the scene of the incident said the baby's carriage was blown into the water by strong winds as it was pushed by her mother.
