2 toddlers die after apparent drowning

MORGAN HILL — Two toddlers have died from an apparent drowning after they were found in their family's pool in rural Santa Clara County.

Authorities say a family member found the siblings, both under the age of 3, in the pool about 4 p.m. Saturday in San Martin, a community of about 4,200 residents located between Morgan Hill and Gilroy.

Both toddlers were flown to Stanford Medical Center via helicopter. One died during the flight, while the other was pronounced dead Sunday morning at the hospital.

The victims' identities were not immediately released. Investigators were trying to determine if the children drowned accidentally.

No other details were immediately made available.
