The Fourth of July turned deadly after three children died in two separate electrocution incidents in Missouri and Tennessee.

Alexandra Anderson, 13, and brother Brayden, 8, were killed while swimming near a private dock in the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri around noon Wednesday.

Adults standing on a dock heard screaming and jumped in. Police say those who jumped in felt electricity and cut off power to the dock. The adults immediately began CPR, but it was too late.

Sgt. Paul Reinsch of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said the electricity could have come from any number of sources.
