Twin toddlers who were rushed to the hospital after they were found in an apartment complex pool in Sunrise remained in critical condition Friday, police said.

Jada and Henry Roman, 2, were still recovering at Plantation General Hospital, a day after they were rescued from the pool at the Springtree apartment complex at 3551 Northwest 85th Way, Sunrise Police said.

Officials said a police officer and a firefighter jumped into the pool to pull out the twins, who were in cardiac arrest and rushed to the hospital.


According to police, their mother, Althea Bradford, is the property manager for the complex. The children had been under the care of a resident of the complex, police said.

Police also released the 911 call from Bradford, who they say didn't know that it was her children in the pool when she made the call.

"911 please come, oh my God," Bradford screams. "There's children in the pool, please hurry."

Bradford found out the children were hers after they were rescued from the water, police said.

Police are still actively investigating the incident.
