Two brothers, Kendell and Kenley Francois, drowned and were found at the bottom of their neighbor’s pool in New Jersey after they climbed a fence while their mother was sleeping.
According to NBC New York, Guerdine Francois called the police at 7pm after she couldn’t find her 3 year old and 5 year old son.
Both of the boys left their house and hopped a fence to go swimming in the pool next door.
The mother told the New Jersey Star-Ledger:
"We were all in the house relaxing and playing. They were watching TV. I fell asleep and when I jumped up, I screamed."
Once the boys were found at the bottom of the pool, officers were unable to resuscitate them and pronounced them dead at the hospital.
Our condolences and prayers go out to the Francois family.
