Young Brothers Drown in Iowa Pond

PRESCOTT, Iowa (AP) --
   Authorities investigating a double drowning at a rural southwest Iowa pond say the victims were young brothers.
   The Adams County Sheriff's Office says the two children, ages 8 and 9, wandered onto a pond Saturday afternoon on their family's property in Prescott and fell through thin ice on the pond.
   The Des Moines Register reports the children's parents contacted authorities after the boys failed to return home from being outside.
   Divers found one child immediately about one foot underwater. The other child was found about 20 minutes later. Both were airlifted to a Des Moines hospital, where they were pronounced dead.
   The children's identities have not been released.
