After a 2-year-old girl drowned and a 6-year-old boy nearly drowned just two hours apart and within a few miles from each other on Tuesday, officials are calling on parents and others to keep close tabs on children near the water.

"We all need to be there for the keiki," said Shayne Enright, spokes-woman for Hono-lulu's Emergency Services Department. "The community has got to step up and step in, even if it is not their child."

In both cases Monday the children got into trouble while their parents weren't paying attention, in areas where there are no lifeguards, one at Sand Island and the other at Kakaako Waterfront Park.
