ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Police say a few kids are lucky to be alive after being swept away while playing in an arroyo late Saturday afternoon.
Albuquerque police say three children ages 11, 13 and 14 were playing in an arroyo near Presbyterian Hospital on Yale and Gibson.
That's when two of the kids were swept away by water.
The 13-year-old and police helped get the other two kids out.
The 11- and 14-year-old kids were taken to UNM hospital.
