    AZ - Twin Toddlers Die As Mom Swats Bee


    YUMA, Ariz. (AP) — Police say 18-month-old twin boys drowned in a southwestern Arizona canal after their stroller rolled into the flowing water when their mother stopped to bat away a bee.

    Yuma police said 26-year-old Alexis Keslar jumped into the steep-sloped canal Friday but couldn't rescue the boys because the deep water was moving too fast.

    Both the article and the video (promoting the online funding account and stating they were "attacked by bees") makes little to no sense.

    She let go of a stroller after the bee "attacked" her, and stroller rolled into the water.
    Police believe it was an accident.
    Just my opinion

    The video promoting the online funding account claims she was "attacked by bees". They also show video of the area and it was a flat paved walkway.

    Thanks for that heads up. I did not even notice the ad, as I have flash disabled in my browser. In any event, here is another link. It seems to have the funding link, also. From what I gather, that is how the media learned of this tragedy.

    Her entire story sounds really unbelievable! The path is completely flat and very wide. Why was she so close to the edge that letting go of the stroller caused it to tumble down the side? Why was the stroller turned in the direction of the water? If she was going straight down the FLAT, WIDE path how did the stroller suddenly turn, roll through dirt & gravel and shoot off the side into the water? It seems so suspicious!

    maybe she or one of the kids were allergic to bee stings?

    I have been uncertain about this story from the get-go. It was a bee. Pick up the pace, jog a 1/4 mile and forget about the bee. All that water right there! What if you just tripped and stuck your arm out as instinct has you do, and you whacked the stroller into the canal? This just seems like a really weird place to push a double wide or double long stroller. I just don't know. Twins I assume would be a lot of fun and attention-getting when new but after the excitement wears off, that is a lot of work. But I know nothing of this woman or her husband. It is just a story that makes me go,"Huh?"

    What do the parents need $20,000 for? Funerals (average) together may be $7-10,000. I guess I am too old & behind the times to understand all this cash fund raising after a death in the family of a non-income earner. Sympathy, empathy, meals, charitable donations, prayers I get. The rest confuses me.

    I was just in Yuma and those currents DO go very fast. Also, it is my understanding it was not a bee but a swarm of bees. I am guessing maybe she headed towards the water believing the bees would stop stinging her and underestimated the current?
    This would have been a fatal event for me, even with an epipen, so I understand getting away from bees. I don't think she did it on purpose, I think she was panicking.

    I'm not buying this. How close were they to the water?

    I always wondered why somebody doesn't do something about that. Then I realized I was somebody.

    I'm buying it. It seems to me like a horrific, tragic accident. If there was any foul play, wouldn't this have caught LE's attention?

    This is nothing like Elijah.
    Elijah's father was mentally ill, his mother had severe PPD after his birth at a rainbow gathering.
    There were red flags all over that situation before Elijah's murder (a "neutral event" as they call it.)
    Most importantly his sisters are STILL not in a safe situation.

    I also agree that I have heard this was a SWARM of bees... not one bee.

    (Although there was a woman here who drove her car off a canyon road because a bee was in her car.)

    There are tethers that joggers use to attach themselves to the stroller.
    I really think raising awareness of that which could have prevented this, should be the focus here.
