(Valley Springs, CA) On 11/12/13 at 4:00 pm, Calaveras County Sheriff’s Dispatch Center received a 911 call regarding a medical distress at a residence on the 5000 block of Rippon Road in Valley Springs. Sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene, and upon arrival they found two 22 year old twin brothers who appeared to be in respiratory distress. The deputies initiated CPR and requested EMS personnel to respond. The brothers, who suffered from a long-term illness and were under the care of a doctor, were connected to breathing ventilators for life support. The brothers were pronounced deceased at the scene.
