The parents of the twins said that the boys are comfortable in the water. They are used to swimming so they were able to tell that the girl was actually drowning.

“You know it’s very rewarding to know that some of the things they are involved with just became an instinct to them. So being in the swimming lessons and safety town they recognized that the little girl was in trouble right away," their proud father said.
