Every Parent’s Worst Nightmare: Two-Year-Old Twin Brothers Drowned To Death In A Fish Pond

Two-year-old twin boys have drowned in “heartbreaking” circumstances after falling into a fish pond in a garden. Emergency services were called to the scene in Dalgety Bay at around 8.20am on Saturday after the brothers were found. The boys, who have been named locally as Rhys and Shaun, were rushed to Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy but later died, Police Scotland said. Local MSP Alex Rowley described the incident as “every parent’s worst nightmare”. Officers are supporting the parents, named locally as Mervyn Scott and Sarah Aitken, as police try to find out exactly what happened.

It is understood the pond is in the back garden of the house. Dalgety Bay councillor Dave Dempsey said the community was shocked. He said: “It is enormously sad and my heart goes out to the family. I cannot begin to imagine what the family are going through – it is everyone’s worst nightmare. The whole community is shocked. “As local councillors, we were all notified that two young children had fallen into a pond and died. To think it is twin boys is heartbreaking.”

So sad! May their souls rest in peace.
