Two children had a close call in Merrimack when their car rolled into a pond.
Police say 24-year-old Christopher Wheeler of Nashua and his kids — aged 6 and 3 — were at a garage he rents at Bower Pond on Monday evening.
As they prepared to leave, Wheeler had the kids get in the car, and one of them put it in gear.
The car rolled down a driveway, across a road and into the pond, with Wheeler running after it.
He got the kids out safely. The car ended up partially under water.
