Reservoir Rescue: Heroes jump in

jogger saves kids

(NECN) Two children are safe after their stroller rolled into a reservoir in Brookline, Massachusetts.

Police say the double stroller with the two kids inside, aged 18 months and 4, rolled right into the water just after 4 p.m. Monday because the brakes weren’t on. The parents were briefly distracted and couldn’t stop it in time.

Several Good Samaritans saw what was happening and jumped into the water.

“The children were buckled in, and at that point it was water-logged, so one of the women jumped in, but she couldn’t really swim, so I tried to help, but she ended up grabbing on me,” one rescuer said.
