Lifeguards helped save two young sisters from drowning at a pool in far north Fort Worth on Tuesday afternoon, police said.
Firefighters and MedStar were dispatched to the Heritage Trace community pool at Heritage Trace Parkway and General Worth Drive about 12:45 p.m.
The girls — ages 5 and 6 — were at the pool with their father when he noticed they had been under water for too long, said officer Brad Perez, a police spokesman. The father got the girls out of the pool, and lifeguards on duty performed CPR.
When paramedics arrived, the girls were conscious, MedStar spokesman Matt Zavadsky said.
