TEMPE, Ariz. – It was a close call for a mother whose infants’ stroller rolled into a pond on Saturday in Tempe.
A mother was out jogging with her twin 1-year-old boys, who were in a jogging stroller, in a grassy area near a pond “ﾓ close to Rural and Baseline.
The mom stopped to pick a lemon from a tree, not realizing that the stroller was on a slight incline, according to Tempe fire spokesman Mike Reichling.
The stroller rolled into the pond, and the mom ran and pulled the stroller — with the twins still strapped in — out of the pond, Reichling said.
She went to a nearby home for help.
Reichling said the boys were transported to a local hospital as a precaution but are expected to be OK.
