TWO-YEAR-OLD twins have died after falling into a garden pond in the Fife area of Scotland.

Emergency services were called to the scene in Dalgety Bay yesterday morning after the boys were found in what is believed to be a fish pond.

The brothers were taken to Kirkcaldy’s Victoria Hospital but were later pronounced dead, Police Scotland said.

A spokesperson for the force said: “We received a call around 8.20am on Saturday following a report of concern for two children.

“Two male twins, aged two years old, had reportedly drowned in a fish pond and officers attended with the Scottish Ambulance Service.

“The children were taken to the Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy where they sadly died.

“Officers are supporting the family at this time. Inquiries to establish the full circumstances are ongoing.”
