A South African grandpa, Ivan Ikes, has taken to social media to mourn the death of his twin grandsons who drowned in a pool at their family home over the weekend.
According to Ivan the twins’ parents had gone to sympathize with another family, and left the kids with the nanny.
However, the twin boys left the nanny in the house and found their way to the pool side.
It was learnt that the drownings were caught on CCTV camera. The grieving grandfather said if it had not been for the CCTV cameras, they would have not known how the boys got into the pool.
Meanwhile, Rescue Care Paramedics arrived at the scene to discover the twins had fallen into the family pool. The paramedics assessed the two boys and attempted to resuscitate them, but all attempts proved abortive and both boys were declared deceased on the scene.
Taking to Facebook to recount the sad incident, Ivan wrote,
“The boys got up and went outside and somehow after fiddling, got the gate to the pool fence opened. The one kid fell in and the other, after what seemed like beckoning to his brother to come out, jumped in to save him.
“They hung onto the Kreepy Krawly for as long as they could until eventually succumbing to their fate”.
