San Joaquin County Sheriff’s spokesman Les Garcia says a man who regularly mows the lawn found the pair in the pool and pulled them out. It’s unclear how long they were in the pool before being discovered.
The 3-year-old apparently fell in the pool and the grandmother, who could not swim, jumped in to rescue the girl, Garcia said.READ MORE: Big Rig Ends Up Perched Precariously On Guardrail After Crash On I-5 In Woodland

“There’s a woman who comes by every day after they (the girls’ parents) leave for work,” said a neighbor who didn’t know the woman, described as in her 60s, was the girl’s grandmother.MORE NEWS: Sacramento Mother Of 4 Killed After Stopping To Help Pedestrian Who Had Also Been Hit
