Twin babies found dead after they were ‘accidentally’ left in hot car

Twin babies have been found dead after they were ‘accidentally’ left in a car on a hot day.  The boy and girl, just five months old, were left inside an SUV in Chesterfield, Virginia. The twins had suffered cardiac arrest and were rushed to nearby Chippenham Hospital on Thursday. They were pronounced dead shortly after, Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

Chesterfield Police Maj. Frank Carpenter said the force believe it was an accident. He said: ‘It wasn’t intentional. We believe it was truly an accident.’ Mr Carpenter did not say how long the babies had been in the vehicle or how hot it was inside the car but said an investigation has been launched.

‘I can’t share that right now because it’s still a pending investigation,’ he said. The children were both hospitalized after being found in cardiac arrest around 2.30pm on Friday near the The Masionette Apartments on the 2400 block of Alfalfa Lane where the family resides. Neighbour Donna Gusti told CBS affiliate WFTV 6: ‘It’s tragic what happened, I don’t even know how to help them with their pain.

‘It was certainly not an intentionally negligent act, it was a horrific mistake that can never be erased.’  Another neighbour told WRIC that the twins’ mother had called to wake up the babies’ father so he could come pick her up from work. ‘That’s when he found the babies in the car,’ they said. Police are currently awaiting autopsy results from the medical examiner’s office.
