It was gathered that the 2-year-old twins named, Sabastiam and Ethan died in a swimming pool at their home in Kloof Falls, KZN, Durban on Saturday, November 28.
The obviously traumatised grandpa in series of posts on his Facebook page between Monday, November 30 and Tuesday, December 1 revealed how they dead and also penned down a tribute to them.
“They came into our lives together. They left our lives together.”
“The boys got up and went outside and somehow after fiddling, got the gate to the pool fence opened. The one kid fell in and the other, after what seemed like beckoning to his brother to come out, jumped in to save him. They hung onto the Kreepy Krawly for as long as they could until eventually succumbing to their fate,”
In another post he shared a photo of their family and said two links from the family chain have left.
“The chain has broken off a once complete family…
“The 2 missing links keeping them happy and sane has left… How do we repair the damage caused and the hurt left behind… Oh if only time could stand still and we could love hug embrace our beloveds more….Lord have mercy..”
Reports have it that the draining incident was captured by the CCTV camera. Meanwhile, hundreds of social media users and South Africans have console with the family.
