SOMERVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Two children were rescued from the water at a home in Morgan County on Monday afternoon.

It happened just after 5 p.m. at a home on Callie Private Drive in Somerville.

Officials said the rescue involved a pair of cousins, aged 2 and 3. Emergency crews said the children were being looked after by two babysitters when they got out of the house and fell into a nearby pool.

Crews said the children were unresponsive when they were pulled from the pool. CPR was performed and both children regained a pulse.

"We have no reason to believe at this point that there was anything except just an accident that happened," said Sheriff Ana Franklin. "Children that age, just a few seconds can be a bad situation, which is what that seemed to be."

The children were taken to Decatur Morgan Hospital. Their condition is not known.
