The Fourth of July weekend almost turned to tragedy for one of the ‘Real Housewives of Orange County.’

Alexis Bellino, 32, and her husband Jim were spending some family time at The Balboa Bay Club in Newport Beach, Calif., when two of their kids were involved in a pool accident.

The couple’s two-and-a-half-year-old daughters Melania and Mackenna were left in an unattended stroller that rolled into the pool with the little girls still in it, reports TMZ.

A lifeguard came to the rescue and pulled the stroller out of the water with one child still strapped in. Bellino’s husband dove into the pool and saved his other daughter from drowning.

Neither child required medical attention.

Witnesses to the frightening scene claim the parents were off “doing something” when the accident occurred, according to TMZ.

Security officers confirm reports that a lifeguard helped save the toddlers, however, Jim Bellino tells the website, “There was no lifeguard needed or involved.”
