© Provided by New York Daily NewsDetectives are investigating how a father and his two children drowned in a house pool on Thursday in Hollywood.
The incident took place in Hollywood, about 20 miles north of Miami.
Officials received a call around 3:30 p.m. about a possible drowning at a home on South Highland Drive and Adams Street, NBC Miami reported.
According to police, when officers arrived at the scene, they encountered one adult male and his two young children.
All three were unresponsive.
Officers attempted CPR and other life-saving measures before rushing them to Memorial Regional Hospital, where they were later pronounced dead.
The victims’ identities have not been released, but police say the two children were aged 2 and 5.
According to local television station WPLG-TV, the person who called 911 was the kids’ mother, who spotted them unconscious in the pool.
Aerial footage appears to show the mother being consoled by police.
“I feel my heart crushed,” a longtime neighbor of the family, Amparo Kostyo, told CBS Miami. “When an adult has an accident or something, OK, it’s an adult. What’s crushed my heart was the kids, I’m very sad,” she added.
Police are investigating what may have caused the tragic incident, but no foul play is suspected.
