(Scroll down for video) Twin boys are dead after their carriage fell into a lake while their mother was busy chasing away a bee, police in Arizona said.

Yuma Police said that Alexis Keslar was walking with her 18-month-old twin boys, Silas and Eli Keslar, beside a lake on Friday, when she tried to chase away the bee.

After she let go of the carriage, it rolled into the lake.

Keslar jumped into the lake and tried to rescue her children, but was hampered by the water depth and strength of the current.

The current washed away the stroller. Keslar left the canal and called for help. After more than an hour of searching, the twins were found and taken to a hospital, where they were pronounced dead.

The medical examiner has ruled the death accidental. No charges will be filed, police said.
