Long Island siblings, 5 and 7, drown in neighbor’s pool
Two children in Long Island were found drowned in a swimming pool after they went missing Sunday afternoon.
Sharon Knowles, 7, and her brother Ralph Knowles, 5, drowned in a neighbor’s pool in Central Islip after they apparently climbed over a fence and got into the neighbor’s backyard, the New York Post reports.
The mother called police around 3:30 p.m. because she couldn’t find her children. The brother and sister were found fully clothed and lifeless in the pool about 4 p.m.
The neighbor was cited for improper fencing, the Post reports.
