Siblings, 2 and 4, die after falling into fast-moving Southern California creek

Two young children, siblings, died after being pulled from the fast-moving waters of a San Bernardino County creek Tuesday, authorities said.

San Bernardino County Fire Rescue responders responded to reports that the young children may have fallen into Mill Creek near the Thurman Flats Picnic Area off Highway 38 around 6 p.m. 05 a.m., firefighters said in a press release.


Authorities say the 4-year-old girl and 2-year-old boy were on a family outing with their mother when the girl fell into the fast-moving waters while her mother was caring for her young son.

“The mother searched for her daughter but was unable to locate her,” the statement said. “When she returned, her son was missing and it was assumed he was also down the river. »

The mother and another family member frantically searched for the siblings, but could not locate them.

Deputies from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, air rescue teams and teams from the United States Forest Service, among others, assisted in the search for the younger brother and sister.

The 4-year-old was found around 4:39 p.m. and the 2-year-old around 5:09 p.m. Both were found near the edge of the river.

Video from the scene obtained by KTLA showed emergency responders performing CPR on one of the children before picking up the child and transporting him to a waiting ambulance.

“They were transported to local hospitals and after extensive lifesaving measures, they were pronounced dead,” authorities said.

No further details were provided.
