( 4UMF NEWS ) Twin Babies Die After Mom Lets Go Of Stroller To Swat Bee:
Eighteen-month-old twins died in a freak drowning accident Friday after their mother let go of their stroller to swat away a bee, causing the boys to roll into an Arizona canal, police said.
Alexis Keslar tried to protect her sons, Silas and Eli, from being stung on a walk along the water in Yuma, police told CNN.
She let go of the stroller handles, only to have the carrier roll off the bank with the boys belted in their seats, police said.
Alexis Keslar jumped in after them but the strong current moved the twins out of her reach, police said.
Authorities spent more than an hour searching for the boys, who were pronounced dead after they were flown to a hospital.
“No parent should ever have to lose a child, you know, let alone both of them at the same time,” family friend Marlene Gleim told KYMA. “That’s what really, really is heartbreaking to me, because those little boys were, you know, meant so much to so many people.”
The family has received more than $20,000 in donations since the accident, according to a GoFundMe page.
