Rockdale Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Yolande Lovingood-Moore said Rockdale dispatch received a call of a double drowning in South Rockdale at a private residence at 12:36 p.m.
Fire & Rescue, Rockdale Sheriff’s Office and National Emergency Medical Service all responded to the call.
“Everyone worked really hard to save them and they pulled through,” said Lovingood-Moore.
