Mandy Lindquist says her twins, Kassie and Hunter, do everything together - so it was no surprise when they went into the family's yard to play together on Monday afternoon (11-8).
Lindquist says she had gone back in their house for a couple of minutes when her daughter Kassie came running in to get her.
"I was sitting on the couch when Kassie came in told me Bubba was dead."
The ramp to a small trailer the twins had been playing on had somehow gotten unlocked - and fallen on Hunter.
"A metal part on the back and then the metal on his neck had caught him and cut off his circulation, and by the time I got to him, he was blue," Lindquist says.
Lindquist says she performed CPR on her son for what seemed like forever. Thankfully, he responded and paramedics arrived moments later and took the child to the hospital.
Remarkably, the 4-year-old was released from the hospital with only a broken shoulder bone and minor bruises.
But, Lindquist says, it is Hunter's twin sister Kassie who is the heroine in this near-tragedy.
Little Kassie says she was just helping her brother.
Though her son might not remember his brush with death, Lindquist says the incident was a wake-up call for her and her husband.
"It's an eye-opener to be more careful ... to watch them more closely."
The twins seem to be doing just fine with their parents standing a little closer.
