HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A trip to the bayou turned tragic Sunday morning on Houston's south side. Two children and their uncle are dead after being pulled from the water.

It happened at Sims Bayou just after 11am. According to Houston police, a family of five, along with their 5-year-old niece and 11-year-old nephew were there on an outing.

The niece and nephew went into the water and got into trouble. Their uncle, who was fishing, reportedly went after them but needed help, as well.

"It can get deep in certain areas, but very marshy so you can start sinking where you thought you were at one height and it's very difficult to pull yourself out," said Capt. Ruy Lozano with the Houston Fire Department.

A bystander found the kids, pulled them out and started CPR on them. They were then transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where they were pronounced dead.

Police say another child went in after the uncle, but he was able to get out and is doing OK.

The body of the uncle was later found by rescue crews.
