interesting is the way the catholic church deals with this kind of circumstances:
a few years ago, the vaticans statement was, if a child dies before being baptized, it wont go to heaven, instead it will be put in limbo to hell, like a waiting room, not the actual hell.
2 years ago, i think it was, the vatican changed this rule, babies now directly go to heaven, baptized or not.

Why is everyone assuming this was a Catholic baptism?
Catholics usually baptize their children before age 1, under normal circumstances.
They never submerge anyone, regardless of age, a priest sprinkles water on the head of the person being baptized. No submerging. Never in a river, either.
Two of the baptisms in the OP were performed at the same "Temple".
Mark 1:9-10 (American Standard Version)
9 And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in the Jordan.
10 And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens rent asunder, and the Spirit as a dove descending upon him

Don’t worry, no arrests were reported.
Stallings said that Sade was born three months prematurely at Children's Hospital and that she had suffered complications from the birth. He said the infant remained hospitalized three months after her birth and was, in effect, "a 1-month old girl" when she was baptized.
"We were unaware of Sade Victoria's medical problems associated with her premature birth," Stallings said. Officials with Children's Hospital would not release details of the child's medical history.
Initial reports indicated that a landing used to walk into the river gave way without warning.
