HOLLYWOOD, FLA. (WSVN) - Rescue crews took two small children to the hospital after they were pulled unresponsive from a swimming pool in Hollywood.

Hollywood Police units arrived at the scene in reference to reports of a drowning incident in a pool along the 6400 block of Meade Street, just before 8 a.m., Friday.

7Skyforce hovered over the pool as first responders worked to save the toddlers.

Surveillance video captured paramedics placing one of the victims in the back of an ambulance.

“It hit me, like, I just feel like in shock,” said area resident Claudia Oyuela.

Neighbors said this home is used as a vacation rental, a fun spot for a family with a private heated pool in the back.

“Everybody wants to be inside a pool, everybody wants to have fun right now,” said Oyuela, “and it’s really sad that something that is very fun ends up like that.”

Paramedics administered CPR on the children, who are between the ages of 1 and 3, before transporting them to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. As of Friday night, their conditions are unknown.

Officials said there is no evidence to suggest any criminal involvement, adding their investigation has concluded.

“I don’t know how the kids are right now, but I hope they’re doing well,” said Oyuela.

7News cameras captured police officers testing the gate on the side of the home, as they tried to figure out how the victims ended up in the pool.

All parties involved are fully cooperating with police in their efforts to determine the circumstances leading to this near drowning.

Hollywood Police Department confirmed that unfortunately, the two kids died.
