A Texas mother has been arrested on charges related to the death of her four-year-old daughter after she allegedly didn't call 911 because her cell phone was 'low on minutes.'

The toddler had injuries on her head, face and arms, according to My San Antonio.
Olivia was immediately taken to University Hospital, where she was pronounced dead the following day.

Briones allegedly told investigators that she didn't call 911 because she couldn't find her cell phone and was "low on minutes."

Doctors at the hospital found that Olivia's injuries - brain swelling and multiple bleeding sites inside her head - were severe and consistent with a blow to the head, according to a report.

The medical examiner's office determined that the little girl had eight scars on her scalp, a black eye, a swollen nose, a deflated lung, a swollen wrist, a fractured vertebrae, a large abrasion on the back of her head, a bruised ankle and the tissue in her upper lip was detached from her gums. Both of the child's arms were also swollen.

The cause of death is still pending, according to the medical examiner's office.
