BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Bakersfield police say two children got away from their group today at the Park at Riverwalk before getting into the lake.
Police say two four year olds had separated from a large gathering consisting of multiple families. The children then entered the lake when a person swimming noticed one of the children appeared in distress.
The swimmer pulled the child from the lake, and the other child was pulled out by a family member of the swimmer.
Police say one child was submerged in the water and had to receive CPR.
Both children were taken to a local hospital for observation and are expected to fully recover.
The investigation revealed that the incident was an accident.
