An investigation is underway after a child nearly-drowned at Prospect Lake on Saturday.  

Thanks to the quick thinking of a brother and sister who happened to see the child face down in the water, the child, who is said to be under the age of five survived.

The teenagers pulled the youngster out of the water, called 911 and began CPR. The child was taken to an area hospital where they are expected to recover.

The Crimes Against Children Unit is looking into the accident. Police say the child’s guardian stepped away briefly to get something out the car. She didn’t realize what had happened until she came back to area that she left some children alone .

It’s unknown if she’ll face any charges.
